Eden Hazard has admitted he was not given the opportunity to play for Eden Hazard Technical High Schools in Wodonga.
In an interview with NRL.com, Hazard told the website that he had always wanted to play at Eden Hazard.
“It’s a great school, it’s the best school in the country.
The academy has been great and it has helped me a lot and I’ve had a lot of support from the school, from my friends and family.””
I just tried to work hard and be the best player I could be and I’m happy that I can say that,” he said.
“The academy has been great and it has helped me a lot and I’ve had a lot of support from the school, from my friends and family.”
The 21-year-old has already won three caps for England, scoring five tries, and is now the youngest player in the NRL history to score 100 points.
“I was just really happy to be a part of the academy and to be able to go and play with the likes of Aaron Smith, David Williams, Ben Foden, Chris Sandow and a bunch of others.”
They have been great support and I think I have been able to learn a lot from them and grow as a person, as well as hopefully being able to play some games with some of the younger boys.
