Watch: The most dangerous 9-10 combination in schoolboy rugby

New Zealand schoolboys Lincoln McClutchie and Folau Fakatava might just be the most dangerous halves pairing in all of schoolboy rugby. The pair has played the last two years together at Hastings Boys High School, forming an unstoppable combination.

Their speed, agility and skill level was on-show recently on the Sevens circuit, where they both ran rampant – taking defenders for a joy ride. The duo makes up for a lack of size with incredible footwork and skill.

Their dynamic partnership has seen them represent the New Zealand Schoolboy Barbarians in 2016 and the Hurricanes u18 side in 2017. Both looked to be included in the New Zealand schoolboys side for 2017 but injury struck Fakatava in the second to last game of the season.

The pair will play for Hastings Boys Sevens team on the weekend at the Condor Sevens in Auckland.

Jean de Villiers' three word response to 'best in the world' debate

This ‘raging’ debate is only happenning in media circles and has never been a topic in Ireland (although SA media are interested). It makes the media companies money I guess. SA are RWC champions and #1 ranked team although Ireland are back within a point there. The facts point to SA. For a lot of 2021 France beat ALL their rivals and Ireland similar in 2022-2023. It is not wrong to say that on such form either can be deemed to be the current best team if they have beaten all their rivals and ranked #1. The ‘have to have won a world cup’ stipulation is nonsense. The world cup draw and scheduling has been tailored to the traditional big teams since the start. The scheduling also which sees the big teams sheltered from playing a hard pool match the week before has also been a constant. It is extraordinary that for example France have made so many finals. Ireland who were realistically only contenders in 2023 were in a Pool with two other top 5 teams and had to play one of them 7 days before a quarter final against France or New Zealand. Always going to be a coin toss. Scotland’s situation was worse. New Zealand had great chances in 1995, 1999, 2007 but they could not win a tight RWC match. The first tight match they ever won was versus France in the 2011 final, literally they lost every other tight match before that. Some of those NZ teams around that era were #1 surely?
