Joshua Radcliffe Selected in Australian Schoolboys Merit XV

Congratulations Joshua Radcliffe on his recent selection in the Australian Schoolboys XV! 

Josh’s skill and athleticism at inside centre were pivotal to Somerset College 1st XV securing the APS Premiership this season – out-energising a strong Kings Christian College outfit to defend a four-point lead in the dying minutes of the grand final.

Josh’s performances earned him a spot in the Queensland Schoolboys team and then the Australian Schoolboys XV.

Josh didn’t miss a chance to play his rugby this season, also running out for Bond Uni Colts in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition.

A huge credit to his attitude and determination – attributes that shone at our Gold Coast Academy in December last year.

“Congratulations to Josh Radcliffe who’s just made the schoolboys merit side. You’re a good, hard worker and you deserve all you get with your selections. Well done mate.” – Toutai Kefu, Course Facilitator and Specialist Coach

“Josh epitomised ‘maximising the IRAA experience’. He was driven, committed and fully focused on his learning. Congratulations Josh on your recent selection, keep striving to be your best.” – Grant Doorey, Course Facilitator

Josh worked closely with the likes of Berrick Barnes, George Smith and Toutai Kefu at our December 2020 Academy. And evidently carried his momentum and learns into his 2021 season.

Congratulations Josh and all the players selected in the President’s XV and Australia A XV merit teams.
