Each year a squad of players will be selected from trials to train together in the build up to the Australian Schoolboy Championships that is played annually in the June/July school holidays.
A final squad of 23 players will be chosen to attend this tournament. It is fantastic opportunity for all Rugby players to represent their state and potentially their country. The Australian Schoolboys and Australian Schools Barbarians sides have been selected from the 2017 Tournament to play Fiji Schools and New Zealand Schools later in the year. Victorians Oli Barden and Alex Sa'aga have been selected into the Australian Barbarians side.
The VSRU U18’s Schoolboy side is an extremely important part of our development pathway.
