Canberra Raiders sign Australia Schools rugby star Charlie Rorke


AUSTRALIAN rugby has lost one of its bright young talents with star schoolboys backrower Charlie Rorke signing with the Canberra Raiders on a two-year rookie contract.

The 17-year-old from Sydney, who is currently completing his high school certificate at St Ignatius’ College, Riverview, follows in the footsteps of South Sydney Rabbitohs star Angus Crichton, who represented Australia’s Schoolboys rugby team in 2013.

Rorke was a member of New South Wales’ under-19s Gen Blue rugby side this season and represented Australia schools in 2016 and 2017.

He played at blindside flanker in Saturday’s 34-11 loss to New Zealand Schools at TG Millner Field.
