Being selected for the Australian Schoolboys is the pinnacle of Schoolboy Rugby in Australia and one of the teams through which future senior representative players are often discovered.

Like their senior counterparts, the Qantas Wallabies, each year the Australian Schoolboys take on representative teams from around the world, both at home and away.

Current Wallaby stars Quade Cooper, Kurtley Beale and David Pocock are all products of the Australian Schoolboys system.

Cooper, who has now won a Super Rugby title with the Queensland Reds and a Tri Nations title also, is still the most-capped Schools player of all-time, with the three amigos last turning out for the pathway-side in 2006.

Current Castrol EDGE Super Rugby young-guns Liam Gill (Reds), Nic White (Brumbies), Tom Kingston (Waratahs), Luke Jones (Rebels) and Justin Turner (Force) have all, also, come through the Australian Schoolboys system.
