Wests Tigers halfback Jacob Miller has been in and around the NRL squad for years, but new coach Mick Potter has now given the NYC winner his first genuine opportunity at nailing down a regular position.


Miller has trained all preseason with the number seven on his back and his combination with star play makers Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah has come a long way.


"The combination is coming along nicely," said Miller. "We've spent the preseason together and the longer we spend on the field together the better we'll be in the coming weeks.


"It's good, I'm a natural organiser and I can get the team around the park.


"When Benji wants the ball and he wants to do his thing, I can get him the ball when he needs it."


Miller is just the latest in a long list of Wests Tigers players to say the preseason under Mick Potter has been the hardest in recent memory with the halfback relishing in his level of fitness in the defeat of Parramatta.


"It felt good out there," said Miller. "Personally I felt very fit, probably the fittest I've felt in a long time.


"I think the boys have had a very good summer. We've trained probably the hardest we've trained in a while so there shouldn't be too many excuses come the season.


"I'm looking forward to playing the Roosters for the Foundation Cup.


"I think we've had a pretty good preparation this week and coming off a not so bad game against Parramatta on the weekend, so things are looking alright."
