Immanuel Feyi-Waboso, the Exeter wing, reveals that despite an outstanding beginning to the Premiership season, he has not been in direct communication with either Wales or England.
At the age of 20, Feyi-Waboso is eligible to represent both nations, yet he was born in Wales and has undergone training sessions with the Welsh national squad in the past.
“Neither of them have spoken to me directly,” Feyi-Waboso told Scrum V.
“As far as I’m concerned at the moment it’s all chatter and at the moment I don’t want to entertain the chatter.”
The player himself has reservations as to whether he is ready for international honours.
“I feel there’s a lot of my game that I need to work on, a lot that I’m still learning,” said Feyi-Waboso.
“It’s up to the coaches whether they decide if I get called up or not.
“It would be a huge privilege to get called up. I would love to be called up but there’s a lot of my game that I need to work on to be considered an international.
“It’s nice to hear the chatter but you need to know where you are.”
But who would be the priority for the Wales Under-18s international? “I was born in Wales, Wales is my home country. I speak a little bit of Welsh,” said Feyi-Waboso.
“They do have a pretty good back three at the moment with players like Josh Adams, Rio Dyer and Louis Rees-Zammit.”
