King’s star heads for Nationals
RUGBY star Sam Higginson has been selected to represent the Under-14 Independent Schools’ English National side to play London Irish and Northampton Saints.
A marauding number eight for the King’s School, Sam, aged 14, said: “I am quite slim for my age, but I’m pretty tough in the contact.
“I’m now working on developing my physical presence.”
King’s School’s head of rugby Guy Mason, who has helped 27 King’s players gain representative honours this year, said: “We have some special young talent coming through the ranks who acknowledge that success is as always 99 per cent perspiration and one per cent inspiration.
“Sam has both talent and application and he deserves his success.”
