Despite becoming the first player in World Cup history to score five tries in a match, Kangaroos winger Valentine Holmes wants the fullback position at club level. 

"I think in rep footy I'm a good winger but I'd like to play fullback," Holmes said. 

"I enjoy more playing fullback. It's not always about scoring tries. I'd like to to set up tries.

"I get a bit excited about scoring tries but obviously in a team like this you've got to wait your turn."

Matt Moylan and Josh Dugan will be joining Holmes at the Sharks next year, leaving coach Shane Flanagan with three options for the number one jersey. 

There have been reports Holmes could leave the Sharks if he does not play fullback in 2018.
