Scholarships for Fijians

HAMILTON Boys High School is interested to offer scholarships to upcoming Fijian ruggers.

After sending one of its scouts to witness the Fiji Secondary School Deans rugby earlier this year, the school revealed that it had some players on its radar.

HBHS deputy headmaster Nigel Hotham said they had conducted a successful interview with some players who they thought could meet the criteria of the scholarship.

HBHS is the reigning champions in the New Zealand Secondary School Rugby Championship.

"I have had some very positive responses from players in Fiji," he said.

"Our representative returned home after completing some very encouraging interviews."

Hotham said they were eyeing a lock forward and loosies to be recipient of the scholarship. He said they had identified few players in the champion Marist Brothers High School under-17 side which won the Deans U17 title.

The New Zealand school have offered scholarships to recent Fijian players such as Samuel Chongkit, Dominiko Waqanibuto, Henry Speight, Save Tokula and the recent recipients of the scholarships were former Queen Victoria School fullback Sevuloni Reece and Josefa Logivatu of Marist Brothers High School.

Other players such as Paula Bale Narawa, Semiti Gaunavou, Epeli Nabou and former Flying Fijian outside centre Albert Vulivuli have attended the Hamilton-based school.
