Seven Wellington First XV players are in the 50-strong New Zealand Barbarians Under 18 squad

Following involvement in the regional development camps that take place across the country next week (school holidays), the players will assemble in Hamilton and form two teams named after New Zealand and Barbarian Rugby legends Andy Haden and Alan Whetton.

The teams will be coached by Mark Hammett and Tom Coventry as they prepare for a one-off fixture on Friday 9 October.

The players selected represent 29 schools from 12 Provincial Unions, spanning from Dargaville High School in the north, to King’s High School in Dunedin. King’s College (Auckland), Hamilton Boys’ High School (Waikato) and St Andrew’s College (Christchurch) have the biggest representation.

The seven Wellington players are:

  • Bradley Crichton (St Pat’s Town)
  • Riley Higgins (St Pat’s Silverstream)
  • Siale Lauaki (St Pat’s Town)
  • Hanz Leota (Scots College)
  • Dominic Ropeti (Scots College)
  • Christian Stenhouse (St Pat’s Town)
  • Owen Wright (Aotea College)
