Fotuaika part of Titans junior blitz

It's not every day that a Queensland Origin forward is part of your Wednesday night training session.

That was the case at the Coomera Cutters this week, with Moeaki Fotuaika visiting as part of the Macca's Club Ambassador program.

Fotuaika and Erin Clark spent time with juniors at the Coomera club, as the Titans spread players right across the region with the every member of the squad visiting a junior club.

Fotuaika says it's something that the players enjoy and he hopes the junior players enjoyed having some NRL players as part of their training session.

"We were lucky enough to come out and see the Coomera Cutters and visit the junior teams," Fotuaika said.

"It's not long ago that I was one of those kids just mucking around and enjoying footy.

"It's great to go out and see the young kids and mix and mingle with them in their training jerseys and talk to them about footy."

On field, Fotuaika is again having a strong season.

At just 21-years of age, Fotuaika has become one of the most consistent props in the game and he puts that consistency down to one thing - hard work.

"It's who I am as a person, I just like to work and get stuck in with the boys," he told Peter Psaltis on Wide World of Sports radio.

After making his Origin debut in 2020, Fotuaika says he would love to pull on the Maroon jersey again but isn't letting that dominate his thoughts in the early stages of 2021.

"At the moment I haven't really looked that far and I'm just focussing week by week at the Titans.

"Whether that is starting or off the bench, I'm enjoying both roles."

The Titans pack has been bolstered by the additions of David Fifita, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, Herman Ese'ese and Sam McIntyre and Fotuaika says along with other new faces (Patrick Herbert, Esan Marsters), the side will continue to improve as they develop their combinations.

"We did have a good start to the season but in recent weeks we've lost our way a bit," he said.

"It's just about getting more games under out belt and it definitely showed last weekend with the amount of points that we scored early.

"The more games we get (as a group) the better we will be in the second part of the season."
