Former 1st XV Representatives and Scots Alumni Sam Carter (ACT Brumbies, OB2007) and Ollie Atkins (NSW Waratahs, OB2006) recently earned their first 'caps’ against the prestigious British & Irish Lions Rugby team.
Ollie Atkins, a 200cm lock from Sydney University had an excellent game against some of the form players in world rugby. The Waratahs lost 47-17 in a competitive fixture.
Sam Carter, a 110kg lock and former boarding student, played a brilliant game for the ACT Brumbies, scoring a historical 14-12 victory over the Lions. This is the first victory for a provincial team over the Lions in 16 years.
Scots to the fore!
