I Ken learn so much more, admits Saints winger Pisi

Ken Pisi may have been on the winning side in all four of his competitive games in English rugby - but he still feels he has plenty to learn.

The Samoan wing, who signed on from New Zealand side North Harbour during the summer, has made a steady start to life at Saints.

He has already established himself as a regular starter at No.14 and has helped his side grind their way up to second in the league.

But when asked how much improving he still feels he needs to do, Pisi replied: “A lot. I’ve got a lot to work on but there’s 20-plus games left so there’s a chance to rectify what went wrong.”

And he added: “I’m feeling comfortable now. The boys have really welcomed me so I’m just enjoying my time at the moment and hopefully it continues.

“I feel like I’ve done my best but there’s always room for improvement.”

Should he want any tips on the attacking side of his game, Pisi could do worse than take a look at two players in the opposition ranks tonight, when Wasps come to Saints.

Tom Varndell and Christian Wade are two of the most feared wingers in the Premiership, scoring tries for fun already this season.

And Pisi knows the duo pose a big danger to Saints’ hopes of a fifth win in a row, but he feels his side are up to the challenge.

“Wasps have got really fast outside backs in Wade and Varndell so we’ve got to do the basics right and we’ll see what happens,” said the 23-year-old.

“They’re great players, good on their feet and they’ve got real pace so it’s a big challenge, but we’re up to it.”

Kick-off at Franklin’s Gardens tonight is at 7.45pm, and tickets are still available. Go to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk
