Jackson Clarke (16), of Waikiki, Jacob Foster-Hall (17), of Warnbro, Robert Ryan (16), of Waikiki, and Liam Van Der Heyden (16), of Secret Harbour, all flew to Logan, Queensland, last Sunday to take part in the competition, which is designed to develop the next generation of Wallabies.

Foster-Hall said making the squad of 25 was a goal he set for himself at the very beginning.

“I was pretty relieved. I was focusing on this goal for a while and when I found out I made it, I was pretty happy,” he said.

“It’s a great opportunity, just working hard – hopefully I can show someone that I’m worth it.”

Foster-Hall and Van Der Heyden both started in WA’s 38-12 win over Central Queensland on Monday.
