Simply wouldn’t be possible (schools wouldn’t release players) and dropping a squad of First XV players in to club is only going to push the club players out. Then we lose them and the school players go back to the GPS comp and leave the clubs bare.

Are the schools allowed to prevent boys from playing club? I know they discourage them, but if your pathway to rep honours requires you to play some club as well, can the school stop you?

IIRC the ASBs flew out for the UK last Sunday (no Schoolies for the truly committed). Does anyone have an itinerary or game schedule? Any idea if any of they games will be streamed? Thanks

The itinerary can be found on the Australian Schools Rugby website in the News section , story on the 1st of Sept has the full tour dates and games .

Not sure about streaming , most likely on rugby.com.au , but just guessing really.

I reckon these lads will do well. This generation will renew the faith in the Green and Gold and Australian rugby

"The results of the five Tour Games for the Australian Schools and Under 18 Tour to Ireland and Scotland will be published here as soon as they become available.
Live streaming will not be possible because of the time difference and some technical issues.
However it is expected that the games will become available within a day or two on--rugby.com.au
The games with local times indication are–
Friday 30th December–7 p.m.–at Limerick v Munster Schools Academy
Tuesday 4th December–5.30 p.m. v Ulster Schools at Queens University

Wednesday 12th December–v Scottish Schools Selection–3.30 p.m.–Oriam,Edinburgh
Sunday 16th December00v Scottish Under 17–1.30 p.m.–Oriam, Edinburgh"



Hang on why have we suddenly dropped a weight class? We went from playing Ireland U/19s and Scotland U/19s to their U/16 and U/17 sides respectively?

Typos I’d suggest, both the “tests” are against U18 national teams. The whole idea of us including non schoolboys was to bring us in line with other countries. Most the UK teams have been U18 academy teams for a little while now.


I’m guessing you’re probably right, Nomad. It seems a funny typo to make though!

^Did you find a team list for the Munster game Reg?
Looked similar to the staring team against NZ with the exception of the back row and swapping the 10s around.


Herbert Moran (7)
