Australian Schools Championships: Standout Performers

The Australian Schools and U18s Championships are being played in Sydney this week with a series of teams from NSW taking on the best from Queensland, ACT and Victoria in the top division.

Players in this tournament, which is seperate to the National U18 Academy games also being played throughout July, are eligible for selection in the Australian A Schoolboys side and the Australian Schoolboys Barbarians who will both play against Tongan Schools later this year.

The final day of the tournament will be streamed live on NSW Rugby TV on Thursday, with replays of all matches played so far this week available on demand.

Here are a few of the standout performers from the opening two days of play.

Oscar Lane - QLD II/King’s Christian College

Tall, red-headed QLD II No.7 Oscar Lane is a fantastic on the ball backrower who has led his team to the Australian Schools final on Thursday. Lane is lightning quick, super tough over the ball and works hard around the park.

Henry James - NSW I/Scots
