Fotuali'i: A win is a win but performance is important to us

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

“We watched the video back from when we played them at Twickenham a couple of months ago.” Fotuali’i told SaintsTV. “They love to play, they love to put a lot of pressure on individuals and testing their skill set. If we play how we want to play, look after our ball and look after the threats that Harlequins have over the ball, then our game plan should take care of it. 

“We haven’t been performing too well recently but we have still been grinding out wins. A win is a win but the performance is really important for us too. Playing against Harlequins at Twickenham was a really big occasion so we had to front up a little bit more. 

“Harlequins played really well that day in December and they're going to be the same this weekend coming so we need to be on top of our game, shutting down any of their threats and keeping control of their game. 

“It’s good to hear about the new signing in Tom Kessell too. It’s always good having competition in your position and seeing some of the young lads coming through. 

“You get a little bit older as the years go by and sometimes you can’t keep up quite as quickly as some of the younger fella’s! So it’ll be good to have someone new come through into this position to keep you on your toes.”

You can hear more from Kahn as he talks about playing at Stadium MK as well as hearing from Dorian West, Sam Dickinson and James Wilson, on the official Saints Podcast, downloadable HERE or streamable across all devices.
