Fotuali'i plays down dire warnings

January 17, 2013 11:52:15 UK

Ospreys scrum-half Kahn Fotuali'i believes the Welsh game is in a healthy state despite the failure of any of the regions to reach the Heineken Cup quarter-finals.

The Swansea-based outfit's opportunity to qualify ended when they drew 15-15 with Leicester Tigers last weekend. It was a spirited performance by the Pro12 team and Fotuali'i put in an outstanding individual display to pick up the man-of-the-match award.

We've got some young talent coming through within our region.

However, with the well-known financial issues of the WRU and several of their star players being drawn by the monetary powers of French rugby, some believe the game is in a dire state.

But the Ospreys' Samoan star insists there is plenty to look forward to. "We've got some young talent coming through within our region, the likes of Eli Walker and the young right winger (Tom Habberfield) who came in at the last minute against Leicester," he said.

"He did very well and was playing out of position, so there's some young talent coming through."

Ospreys are 17.00 to win the RaboDirect Pro 12 Grand Final this season while Scarlets can be backed at 26.00 and Ulster at 2.37.

Having enjoyed a successful couple of years with the Welsh region, the 30-year-old has also been linked with a move away. But Fotuali'i refused to be drawn on his future and is still looking to help the team achieve their targets this season.

He added: "I'm still deciding but that's out of my hands at the moment, I'm really just focusing on performing with the boys here.

"Although we were disappointed with the draw against Leicester there were some positives out of it and we've just got to move forward now. I think we're all coming along, we're performing as a team."
