Caterham School Rugby Captain Selected for National Team

Published on isbi School News dated Tuesday 21st of January 2014

Caterham School's 1st XV Captain, Rory Carter, has been selected for the Independent Schools RFC. He joins a squad of 34 players selected from schools across the country.

The Independent Schools RFC, known as 'The Lambs,' was set up in 2006 to provide representative rugby opportunities for talented young players where they did not exist before.

The team will play the Irish Exiles on January 26th, followed by fixtures against Loughborough Students U19 XV, Crawshays and the Boys Club of Wales. The Lambs season culminates in a tour to Zimbabwe in April with a fixture against the National U19 XV.

The Lambs philosophy is that rugby should and can be a game where creative expression and physical courage meet in harmony. Their aim is to move away from over-prescriptive, boot-led rugby and give players the opportunity to play 'Fast and Free' without being shackled by a win at all costs mentality.

Dan Richards, Head of Rugby at Caterham School, said: 'This is a highly prestigious side made up of the best players from rugby playing schools who are not involved with a professional academy. It is a fantastic achievement by Rory. He is the third Caterham School student in five years to be selected for this National XV. Two other Caterham School students, Chris Starns and Ryan King, played in the regional trials last autumn but unfortunately they did not make the National squad.'
