Recent state and Australian representatives

LukeTom Kingston (SAC 2009)
Tom Kingston (SAC 2009) represented NSW and Australian Schools in 2009 before joining Sydney University last year. Bypassing Colts, Kingston settled straight into grade establishing his place in the No.13 jersey in second grade.

He earned a rookie contract with the Waratah's early in 2011 after an impressive pre-season training alongside the Super Rugby squad with the HSBC Junior Waratahs.

LukePat McCabe
After starting the 2010 season as a relative unknown in world provincial rugby, Pat McCabe quickly ensured that he was household name by the end of the year. The studious utility back made his Super 14 debut on the wing against the Force in Week One and went on to be the only player in the competition to play every minute of every match for his province. McCabe's consistent performances in his maiden season didn’t go unnoticed as he claimed the Australian Super 14 Rookie of the Series, the CA Technologies Brumbies' '‘Best Back' and 'Most Outstanding Young Talent', and the Rugby Union Players' Association's Newcomer of the Year. Following a standout provincial season, the 22-year-old was called into the Australian squad to cover for the injured Peter Hynes and Cameron Shepherd for the Wallabies' South African leg of the Tri-Nations Series. While he was not called upon, he did earn a call-up for his first Spring Tour where he made his Test debut replacing Adam Ashley-Cooper off the bench in the side’s 32-14 win over Italy in Florence. McCabe, who finished runner-up to George Smith in the 2010 Brett Robinson Players Player, has built his success on his fast and fearless running game, accurate kicking, punishing defence and miserly mistake rate.

LukeBernard Foley
Rising star Bernard Foley made his Australian Sevens debut during the opening leg of the 2009/2010 IRB World Series in Dubai. Bernard was struck down with injury in Las Vegas, forcing him to miss the Adelaide and Hong Kong legs of the tournaments.
Bernard returned to the side in May and played a starring role in Australia's first victory on the circuit since 2002 when they won the London event and admirably followed up that performance with a finals appearance a weekend later in Edinburgh, despite missing a handful of regular players.
 One of four Sydney University club members in the Australian Sevens training squad, Bernard was named Uni Colts Best and Fairest player in 2009, capping off a magnificent season with a 22-point haul in the Grand Final victory over Southern Districts.

A product of St Aloysius College in Sydney, Foley represented the NSW Schoolboys in 2007 and is currently studying Economics at Sydney University. Also a keen cricketer, Bernard's maiden century for his school 1st's is his proudest sporting moment.
