Savou makes a dream start in his England debut

FILIMONI Savou made a dream start for the England under-17 side scoring a try with his first touch in the 29-25 win over France earlier this week.

He came off the bench at outside centre in the opening spell and held off several tackles to score the try.

"As soon as I got the ball I knew it was try time. It was an unbelievable feeling to score in the biggest game of my life. I was absolutely buzzing for the rest of the match," Savou told gazetteherald.co.uk.

"We were supposed to run patterns but at that stage we could not afford to take any risks.

"Every single player on our team was smashing the ball up the middle. We worked together brilliantly as a team and fought for each other.

"This was by far the best moment in my life and I am indebted to so many people, including Terrington Hall headmaster Jon Glen who gave me the chance to come to England, and the Terrington families who have supported me all the way, in particular the Charters, the Listers and the Nordlis."

Savou, who plays for the Saracens academy, has his eyes fixed on playing for the England U18 side next season.

He is the son of former Fiji 7s player and coach Josateki Savou.
