A REPRESENTATIVE from Hamilton Boys High School is in the country to identify potential secondary school rugby boys who could be offered a scholarship to the school next year.

This is confirmed to Times Sport by HBHS deputy headmaster Nigel Hotham. He said players from around Suva and Nadi schools were interviewed.

Hotham added they would announce the scholarship recipient soon.

"A representative of our school has been in Fiji this week, interviewing candidates in both Suva and Nadi, for next year's scholarship to Hamilton Boys' High School," he said via email.

The Hamilton-based school are the current New Zealand Secondary School Rugby Champions.

Hotham added they wanted to bloster their squad this year. He said they were looking for a tough lock or loose forward.

"A further scholarship is available for 2015 at the school. And with a preference for an outstanding 17 or 18 years old, standing at 1.90meters, plus with ball carrying lock or loosie with a strong training ethic.

"Expressions of interest can still be made to nhotham@hbhs.school.nz."

Last year, Sevuloni Reece of Queen Victoria School and Josefa Logivatu of Marist Brothers High School were awarded the scholarships.

The school has been attended by several Fijians including the players such former New Zealand 7s representative Save Tokula, soon to be Wallaby Henry Speight, Rakuita Vakalalabure, Paula Narawa, Samuel Chongkit and Semiti Gaunavou.
