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.”
