Australian Schools Rugby News : April 2009
WORK OF THE AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS RUGBY FOUNDATION – THE PLAYER SUPPORT FUND “The worry of levies for Schools Rugby Representative Players” THE GLOBAL economic crisis will put more pressure on our representative schools’ rugby players. There will be more costs as many sponsors have been lost – hopefully temporarily. Many levies have been re-introduced or increased! The work of the Australian Schools Rugby is enhanced by the strong leadership and action of the Australian Schools Rugby Foundation and the Macquarie Bank Sports Foundation. The Schools Rugby Foundation – which is headed by former Wallabies Paul McLean, Greg Cornelsen and Bill Ross. Guy Reynolds from the Macquarie Bank is a great benefactor as is Ken Grover from Gullivers Sport Travel. Obviously funding is limited but at the moment covers Under 18 players in the representative teams which have been selected to play to compete for positions in the state teams for the Schools. Players from families with economic hardship can make application for assistance. When this is done the school Principal is notifi ed to request an opinion on the status of the applicant. The request generally comes from the parents and can be directed to: Mr B Carberry ARFSU Administrator PO Box 289 SOUTH HURSTVILLE 2221 BJCarberry@bigpond.com 2009 SUPER 14 PRODUCTS OF FORCE AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS Aust Schools BRUMBIES Richard Brown Pekahou Cowan Ryan Cross 2001 2002-03 1996-97 Scott Daruda 2003 Aust ‘A’ Matt Giteau Gareth Hardy 2000 Aust ‘A’ 1998 Dane Haylett-Petty 2007 Aust ‘A’ Tom Hockings 2003 Aust ‘A’ Luke Holmes Drew Mitchell James O’Connor 2001 2001 2007 Chris O’Young 1998 Aust ‘A’ Junior Pelesasa David Pocock Nathan Sharpe Cameron Shepherd Aust ‘A’ Richard Stanford Scott Staniforth Josh Valentine Academy Contracts Justin Turner REDS Quade Cooper Ben Daley Rod Davies Anthony Faingaa Saia Faingaa Will Genia James Hanson Sean Hardman Peter Hynes Digby Ioane Ben Lucas Hugh McMeniman Rob Simmons Aidan Toua 1997-98 2005 1995 2003-04 1995 2000-01 2008 Aust Schools 2004-05 2005 2006 2004 2003-04 2005 Aust ‘A’ 2005 1994-95 2000 1997 2004-05 2001 2006 2007 Morgan Turinui 1999-2000 Brando Va’aulu Laurie Weeks 21 2005 2003 Peter Betham Mitchell Chapman Mark Gerrard Ben Hand Josh Holmes Patrick Phibbs Julian Salvi Guy Shepherdson George Smith Tyrone Smith Matt Toomua John Ulugia Aust Schools 2005-06 2001 1999-2000 2000 2004 Christian Lealiifano 2004-05 Alfie Mafi 2002-03 1999 1997-98 2001 2007 2004 Rookie Contracts Afusipa Taumoepeau 2007 WARATAHS Kurtley Beale Matt Carraro David Dennis Luke Doherty Matt Dunning Damien Fitzpatrick Adam Freier Daniel Halangahu Rob Horne Ben Mowen Dean Mumm Dan Palmer Peter Playford Aust Schools 2005-06 2002 2003 2000 1996 2007 1997 2002 2006-07 2002 2002 2006 1998 Tatafu Polota-Nau 2002-03 Beau Robinson Benn Robinson Jeremy Tilse Lachie Turner Phil Waugh 2004 2002 2004 2005 1996-97 2006 1999
