Despite a performance that was not one of his best efforts, Tigers fullback Tom Humble says that he is still the man to play the fullback role for the Wests Tigers, in season 2012.

Although Humble has not played to his best, he has not been the only Tiger to not reach those heights – despite the club being labelled premiership favourites by the bookies.

He only has 6 NRL appearances to his name, but given that James Tedesco is out for the season with an ACL injury, and Tim Moltzen is playing halfback due to the departure of Robert Lui, Sheens is left with Humble, as the only recognised fullback in his team.

In light of all this, Humble knows that now is the time to take any opportunity that he gets.

“You’ve go to take opportunities when they come,” Humble said.

“The circumstances in how I got the spot are terrible. But I can’t feel sorry for anyone otherwise that will lead to my demise.”

Whilst he has played well, there is room for improvement for Humble at fullback, with the former Eel saying that he is still getting used to the Tigers style, and will take some time to master it entirely.

“I’m still getting used to the way the Tigers play and at fullback it’s the best spot to learn,” he said.

“At Parra, I played at fullback, five-eighth, hooker, centre and a few off the bench.

“But at this stage of my career I need to lock myself into one spot and that is fullback.”
