Mitchell Scott, son of former All Black Steve Scott, is the latest winner of the HSBC Penguin Rugby Award at the recently completed IRANZ course in New Zealand. Mitchell is an exciting centre/wing/full-back and has already represented New Zealand at U20 level. He currently plays for the Tasman ITM Cup side.
He is the latest in a succession of gifted young rugby players to have won this award. Previous winners were Karl Bryson from New Zealand, Alan McGinty from Ireland, Roelof Smit and Frank Wagenstroom, both of whom are from South Africa. As part of his prize for winning this prestigious award, Mitchell will be selected to play for the Club during the HSBC Penguins tour to Asia in November. He will also tour the Philippines as part of an IRANZ graduates team to play the Philippine Volcanoes, the National Sevens side.
HSBC Penguins look forward to welcoming Mitchell on tour!
