Seven players have been added to the two Australian Schools squads, as they prepare to face New Zealand and Fiji.

Will Harrison (Marcellin College, Randwick), Marco Bell (Waverley College), Koen Dovey (The Southport School) and Tristan Stanghon (Anglican Church of England Grammar School), will all join the Australian Schools squad that will take on New Zealand, while Joey Walton (Wadalba Community High School), Dylan Dowling (St Joseph's College, Hunters Hill) and Lincoln Smith (Marist College, Canberra) have come into the Australian Barbarians squad that will face Fiji.

The inclusions continue NSW and QLD's dominance of the two squads, despite ACT claiming the national title for the first time since 1988.
