Yuki - From  Japan - year  13


I have been at Rotorua Boys’ High School for three years. Coming from Japan, I have learned many things about Rugby and here has also helped my English a lot. 

I felt so happy and proud when I played my first game of rugby for the Rotorua Boys’ High School 1st XV rugby team. My team is currently the 

National Champion team for New Zealand and this year it was a highlight for me to take my ‘brothers’ from Rotorua Boys’ High School to my motherland, Japan and play rugby against my Japanese ‘mates’ at the SANIX RUGBY WORLD YOUTH TOURNAMENT. It was also wonderful to show my Rotorua friends how good Japan is. 

It has been a great experience to study and play rugby at Rotorua Boys’ High School.
