QUEANBEYAN Whites contracted Wallabies player Nic White says he has plenty of improvement left in him but is confident he can hold his spot in the side after a great three-test tour with France ended last Saturday.

White played a great hand in the Wallabies' clean sweep, and with seven straight test wins, they are in their bet form since 2000.

And while he did not come up with the scintillating plays he often does with his Super Rugby outfit the ACT Brumbies, he remained solid and composed, and had numerous try assists throughout the series.

He said he was happy with how he played throughout the series but conceded the experience and talent around him helped his cause.

"For me it's just about finding Foley and [centre] Matt Toomua to find our outside backs, and it's good when those guys get us over the game line and who can create something put of nothing," he said.

White has had a strong connection to Queanbeyan since his arrival in 2009 and leading of the club's first grade side to it's last John I Dent Cup premiership where he kicked the winning goal.

Of his 13 tests to date, White has had seven starts, and is the latest of a host of Wallabies players to come out of the club.

Wallabies legends David Campese, Matt Giteau, Peter Ryan, David Grimmond, brothers Saia and Anthony Faingaa, as well as dual international Ricky Stuart all derive from the Whites' helm.

But White refused to think of reaching the heights these players before him have, and said he needs to look at his own game week by week to keep earning Wallabies selection.

"I think if you had asked any of those guys at the age of 23 if they were going to be well remembered, none of them would have said that they'd thought about it," he said.

White was apart of a brand new halves combination with NSW Waratah Bernard Foley which looks set to stay for the upcoming Rugby Championship.

Fellow Whites club contracted player Tevita Kuridrani also represented Australia against France.
