Fijian born Wallabies winger Henry Speight has been confirmed as the guest speaker for the Fiji Sports Awards that will be held this Saturday at the FMF National Gymnasium in Suva.
Speight is likely to play for the Brumbies on Friday evening when they take on the Reds at Brisbane’s Suncorp stadium and makes an early flight to Fiji for the awards.
Speight's first taste of pro-rugby came in his final year at Hamilton Boys High School, when he was picked for Waikato, making his debut against the Bay of Plenty in 2008. Speight went on to represent his province over four seasons. Not eligible for the New Zealand Schoolboys, Speight represented his native Fiji in the same year at the Junior World Cup in Belfast.
Speight made his Brumbies debut during the 2011 Super Rugby season against the Chiefs in Canberra. After becoming eligible for national selection, on 11 September 2014, Speight made his Wallabies debut during the 2014 Spring Tour against Ireland.
The rugby superstar has played 17 test matches for the Australian Wallabies and aims played 94 games for the Brumbies scoring 34 tries.
