Mr Rick Francis was one of the driving forces behind FAHS rugby as a competitive entity. The former hostel manager spent 15 years at FAHS and was coach and mentor to the 1st XV during his time at the school, but died in November 2012. His commitment to sport and excellence will be remembered, along with his quotes.
FAHS has produced ten All Blacks, five of them in the past 10 years. We also have eleven past 1st XV players in the Super Rugby competition, with many others entering ITM Cup squads and provincial academies. Plus we have a current IRB World Series Champion with Sarah Goss in the NZ Women's Sevens.
