PRIORY Community School students, brothers Jake and Josh Caulfield are celebrating after both received international recognition.
Former Priory Community School student and current Ulster prop Jake Caulfield, aged 19, has been called up to the Ireland Under-20 squad to face Wales in the Six Nations.
Meanwhile, younger brother Josh (15), currently in Year 11 at the Academy Trust, has been selected for the England South West Under-16s to play through various dates in February.
Coaches will then select the full England Under-16 team on the basis from their performances, but he has been rated as one of the highest-performing rugby players of his age in the country.
