In his second season at Quins, the 28-year-old has been in superb form recently taking over from the injured Joe Gray and Rob Buchanan in the last of the 11 games.
With his rivals nearing a return to action, the former Cornish Pirate hopes he has done enough to give Conor O'Shea selection headaches for the rest of the season.
"I had my opportunity following Joe and Rob's injuries but I hope I've shown Conor and the coaching staff what I can do," he told The Rugby Paper.
"Joe is a Premiership winning hooker while, at his best, Rob is probably one of the best hooker in the country. We all vie for that No.2 shirt and it can only be good for the team.
"Scrummaging and throwing is vital in my position especially as we use the lineout a lot in our game. It's only then that I see how I can help the team in other aspects.
"I used to play openside in my youth so it helps but the style of rugby we play at Quins also helps a lot."
