Yeah.not many from our school. I was going to do just a bit of research but became intrigued with this idea. So here goes:

1. Will Ashton ('97 - Aus Schoolboy. He would have played higher level of footy if he didn't pass away shortly after finishing school).
2. Paul Darveniza (62' - Wallaby).
3.
4.
5. Anthony Abrahams ('62 - Wallaby).
6. Hugh Summerhayes ('14 - Aus Schoolboy. NSW Gen Blue).
7. Dominic O'Neil ('94 - Aus Schoolboy).
8.
9. Richard Fogarty ('99 - Aus Schoolboy).
10. Christian Warner ('94 - Waratahs, Leinster, Australia A)
11. Ian Williams ('82 - Wallaby).
12.
13.
14. Ed Stubbs ('06 - Aus 7s, NSW Eagles, Brumbies, Force)
15. Daniel Batman ('98. Also attended Scots - Brumbies. Competed in the 200m for Aus at the 2000 Olympics. Died in a car accident in 2012).

I'm a bit late in joining the chat .... but i think if you ask Cranbrook who their most talented rugby player ever, they most likely say someone by the name of Matt Street. Tragically died in a car accident when we was only 20, back in 1980. He missed out on the 1977 Schoolboys tour because he played 5/8. After leaving school he was understudy to Mark Ella for NSW. Today you still see the Matt Street Shield presented at the National Schools C'ship and I think Easts also has a shield named after him. He was not out of place among the Ellas, Hawker, O'Connor .... at school or club level while playing for Easts.
