Jake Caulfield, of Market Avenue in St Georges and Joe Gadd, who lives in Upper Bristol Road in Weston, both aged 14, have been selected to play rugby for The Bristol Academy.

School principal Neville Coles said: "Both Jake and Joe are exceptional rugby players.

"However, what has really pleased us about their selections is the way in which they have been commended on their attitude and sportsmanship.
