    It's the pick of players who were selected to play for the Australian Secondary School teams over the years.

    got double figures in the UAI or TER or whatever it was.

    Well Les Boyd might scotch that theory

    You got to think that there has been a lot of Aussie Schoolboys reps who have never amounted too much if Ian Schubert made the side.

    Was Les Boyd selected as a prop as a schoolboy ?? or were there no real "name" props to choose

    Alexander never played for Australia in a schoolboy comp. But he was named as being in a team of best schoolboys of his year.

    The team is a joke imo.

    Alexander totally dominated the Amco Shield or whatever it was called in his day. II am surprised they left out Royce Ayliffe as he was a dominant player in the 1972 Schoolboy team, coached by Roy Masters that dominated the Poms on the equivalent of a Kangaroo Tour.

    Yeah Walter played Astralian shoolboys union.

    The main reason I put this up was that I didn't realise Beaver played for the Aussie Schoolboys.
