The team from the Lambs were impressed with Harry's speed and Ike's tactical awareness.
"Both boys have been coached for the past two years by Headmaster Andrew Lewin, who is a qualified rugby referee. They are key members of our rugby team, and we are immensely proud of them."
Andrew Lewin, Headteacher at Terra Nova said: "We are delighted that Ike and Harry have been selected, adding to former Terra Nova pupils who have represented the Lambs - Fraser Summer, William Lewin and Theo Smith.
