Michael Hooper and Scott Higginbotham talked to students in a Wallabies values forum which aimed “at bringing the rugby field into the classroom”.

An Australian Rugby Union spokesman said the visit was about passing on rugby union’s best values and cultures to the students so they could use it in their everyday lives.

“Values such as discipline and hard work are important in anything you do in life,” the spokesman said.

Hooper said the grassroots tour was important for the future of rugby union to stay connected to private and public school systems.

“Visits like this are our way of giving back and help spread the Wallabies messages of hard work and sportsmanship,” Hooper said.

Hills Grammar is renowned for its rugby success and one keen onlooker at Wallabies visit was year 8 student Stephen Hancock.

Stephen plays halfback for Hills Grammar’s under-15s and has also played club rugby for Beecroft.

“The Wallabies visit is a great opportunity to see our heroes up close,” Stephen said.

“My friends and I love rugby union because it’s a fast and physical game needing lots of skills.”
