Two St Augustine's pupils have recently represented the North in the sport of Rugby Union, each in their own unique way.
Amy Harling, year 10, has played 3 fixtures for Lancashire's U16's this season, before being selected to play for the North of England V the Midlands at Scarborough last month.
Amy, who plays centre, was knick named "the demon tackler" by her coaches.
Her achievement is all the more remarkable as she gained all these honours despite only playing a handful of school games of both League and Union codes.
Meanwhile Dan Basquill, year 11, has taken to the field to represent the Irish Exiles North Region, which incorporates North Wales, the Isle of Man and Scotland.
The Exiles offer opportunities for boys and girls who qualify to play for Ireland a chance to show off their skills and play against the Irish provincial sides.
Dan was one of 80 U17 lads who battled away in front of selectors and academy managers, as well as a host of Internationals, at the London Irish Sunbury ground.
Dan and his team won through to the final before succumbing to the local South East side in a tough encounter.
