YOUNG Eddie Wainibuli is the latest Fijian to win a scholarship to England.

Filimoni Savou, son of former Fiji sevens coach Joe Savou was the first Fijian to receive the scholarship, given by the Terrinton Hall Preparatory School.

Wainibuli would attend Woodhouse Grove. He said he was excited to be given the opportunity to expand his rugby knowledge.

"I am really excited to be going to Woodhouse Grove in September," he said in a statement.

"The boarding accommodation is fantastic and I know my sport is going to benefit hugely and my academic opportunities will be enhanced too.

"I am very grateful to Terrington Hall for giving me the opportunity of an English boarding education and the chance to win a scholarship to such a prestigious senior school."

Terrington Hall headmaster Jon Glen said Wainibuli was the fourth Fijian to be awarded the scholarship.

Savou won a sports scholarship to Shiplake College was signed up by Saracens and later represented the England under-17 side.

Cameron Keanurico and Sakeasi Kaitoga are the other two Fijians who were recipients of the same scholarship. The duo won sports scholarships to Durham School where they continue to impress with their rugby.

"Eddie is Terrington Hall's fourth successive Fijian to win a scholarship to their senior school having been accepted onto Terrington's Fijian scholarship program," he said.

"I know Eddie will be a huge asset to Woodhouse Grove and we wish him well."

Woodhouse Grove headmaster David Humphreys, said he was delighted to welcome Wainibuli to the Grove. His place is being sponsored, in part, by a Methodist Bursary Fund that can assist any child from Methodist families in the UK and all over the world to attend Woodhouse Grove.
