They will compete with the top teams from Queensland and NSW who have two teams each and the ACT. After a number of years of dominating the Division II Championships Victoria and WA have demonstrated their depth with the success of the Combined States team in recent years -- in 2009 they defeated the NSW I team to make the final against Queensland I. The Australian Schools Division I Championships will be at Ballymore in Brisbane next year commencing on Tuesday 6th July. The Division II Championships will be held at Geelong Grammar School commencing on Saturday 26th June. Tradition Continues with UK Tour The talented players, featured in this edition, have been selected to tour Ireland and the United Kingdom in the tour of a lifetime!

Our first tour was in 1973 and we have been doing the tour generally every four years. What is significant about these tours -- which this year coincides with the Wallabies 'Grand Slam' tour to the same end of the world -- is the significant number of Wallabies which have come from them.
