St Helens will continue to improve despite having already made a perfect start to the season, says Travis Burns.

The Super League champions have won all four of their league fixtures, with their only loss coming to South Sydney Rabbitohs in the World Club Series.

Australian stand-off Burns, 31, is a new arrival at Langtree Park this year having joined from Hull KR.

"We know we're not anywhere near the side that we know we're going to be," he told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"It's only early on in the season and there's some new players in key positions.

"We know that we're not playing our best footy, but we know we're playing well enough to get the wins so you can't ask for more than that.

"There's more to come from St Helens as we're not firing on all cylinders at the moment but we're winning the games that champion teams win."

Following their 39-0 thrashing by Australian champions South Sydney, head coach Keiron Cunningham ruled out panic changes to this team.

Saints have since rallied and they have the best defensive record in the division, conceding just 43 points so far and sit second behind Leeds, who have also won all their games.

"I am enjoying it," added Burns. "Personally, I'm happy with my form. At a new club I've got to learn new structures and the style of play. I know I'm not playing anywhere near my best football.

"It's pretty exciting that I know that we're winning games and I'm probably not at my best - I'm not saying I'm playing bad football, but I know there is plenty of improvement in me.

"I really feel in the next few weeks you're going to see the best of me."
