Danny Care says England's current squad is the best team he has ever played in.
Eddie Jones' outfit retained the Six Nations Championship last weekend and need to beat Ireland in Dublin this Saturday to make it back-to-back Grand Slams.
Care is named on the bench for the Aviva Stadium fixture and the Harlequins' scrum-half cannot speak highly enough of his 'world-class' team-mates.
"I think as a team it is definitely the best I have ever been a part of," Care said.
"You look around the changing room and there are a lot of world-class players in a lot of positions.
"Everything seems to be clicking and going in the right direction. It's not just our attack or our defence, it's everything.
Everything seems to be clicking and going in the right direction.
"The set-piece, the boys up front are doing an unbelievable job setting the bar there, giving us some fantastic ball.
"George Ford and Owen Farrell as a combination seems to be working brilliantly. And you look at Maro Itoje. He's still only 22 but plays like he's a 100-cap veteran.
"But we won't get ahead of ourselves and the aim is to be No 1 in the world and we still have a lot of work to get there.
"Winning that next game will be a huge achievement for us first. Eddie has talked about success and failure and how quickly it can turn to failure.
"We want to be successful and want to win as many games as we can. We're not thinking about records and all our focus is about winning a Grand Slam."
