Thumbs up Rugby Scholarships for younger players

Hey,

I'm from Hungary nd i'd like to know if there are any rugby scholarships (full) or any high schools that offer places for international players to play.In England or in France mainly but We have heard about this south african rugby scholarship ( Sharks developement or something like that but we don't have the necessary informations and requirements.) Maybe you can help us out.
Anyway, My boyfriend is 16.

Thanks a lot

Cheers

Firstly, scholarships will only be given to players who are exceptionally skilled or who have physical attributse which would suggest they could be moulded into an outstanding player.

In terms of scholarships at schools in South Africa, I don't know much at all, but for Australia I do. Many private/independant/sports schools in Australia (particularly in the Eastern States of NSW and QLD) give several scholarships a year (each school that is). Not only do they come from Australia, but I have known of many from other countries, particularly Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.

I can provide you with contacts to several headcoaches and talent scouts here if you could provide me with his attributes...Height, weight, 20m sprint, 40m sprint, 100m sprint, vertical jump, beep test, and whatever else you would consider important. Also, what is his playing experience?

When is his birthday? I know you said he is 16, but if he is turning 17 very soon, perhaps he is too old to start a scholarship, as most schools will only consider giving out scholarships for a minimum of 2 years.

Also, consider this. Many people forget about high school scholarships if its too late, and wait until they have finished school and then travel to a major club and start off in that club's feeder teams in the hope of climbing the rankings for an eventual start in the major european team.

I wish you the best of luck, however your best bet would be sticking in Europe .

The Southern Hemisphere is a very hard nut to crack...there are many more opportunities in Europe unfortunately.

EDIT: I just noticed you provied an e-mail address...

Hi,
I am from Singapore. My son is a rugby player. He has been playing rugby since he was 10 when he joined Centaurs RFC. Now he is playing for his school. Recently, he was selected into the Singapore Barbarians Centre of Excellence. I am looking for a rugby scholarship for him in Australia. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Looking forward to your replies. Thanks.

p.s. you can email me at idristaha@gmail.com
