Year 13 pupil Sam Higgins represented the country as part of the
Independent Schools Barbarians U18 National rugby squad, in an
impressive first match against Irish Exiles.
The Barbarians beat the Irish Exiles 55 points to 17 at KEQMS on
Sunday 23nd January in their first game of the season with Sam
scoring 'an excellent breakaway try'.
The squad is made up of the best rugby players from Independent
Schools in the country including Cheltenham College, Portsmouth
Grammar and Woodhouse Grove School. Sam was chosen after impressing
selectors while playing for the North squad earlier in the year at
the ISB Divisional Championships at Moseley RFC.
The Barbarians teams aim to expose the talents and expand the
opportunities of above average players from a number of independent
rugby playing schools. The idea is to give the boys a platform to
play which is above and beyond their school's 1st XVs.

U19s on 5 February at the Glamorgan Wanderers' ground.
