They might have missed out on the England Rugby League World Cup squad when it was announced last week, but Louis McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Tony Clubb certainly gave England boss Tony Smith food for thought in Saturday's 74-0 thrashing of Wales.
The Harlequins Rugby League duo bagged a debut try each, while team-mate Rob Purdham, who did make the final cut for Australia, opened the scoring for his country, before converting nine of the 14 tries.
However, for Quins boss Brian McDermott, seeing Clubb and McCarthy-Scarsbrook make their debuts was a proud moment.
They became the first players who have come through the club's development system - from its beginnings in 1980 as Fulham, through its London Crusaders and London Broncos days - to reach full international status.
A third player in the victorious England side, Darrell Griffin, also came through the club's academy ranks in its Broncos days before moving to Huddersfield.
McDermott said: "This is great news for all three players, and credit to their performances throughout the testing season we had.
"It also reflects the work that has been put into the likes of Clubby and Louis over the years by people like Phil Jones and Dave Evans.
"There are exciting times ahead for this club, and I'm sure they won't be the last play-ers with a southern accent to play rugby league for their country."
It wasn't so long ago that you were more likely to hear an Antipodean accent than any other in a Broncos line-up.
But since the switch to Harlequins Rugby League, not only have more English players been coming through, but more London-based ones too.
And when they beat Super League champions Leeds Rhinos back in June, no less than seven of the Quins side had come through the club's ranks.
Quins player performance manager Phil Jones said: "The production line is really bearing fruit now. All London junior players have a clear pathway to playing full international rugby league.
"A few years ago, they might have had ambitions at playing Super League. But now they can look at Louie and Clubby and aim right for the top.
"The amount of talent now coming through is exceptional, especially when you consider neither Louie nor Clubby were selected for the national camps when they were juniors."
Club skipper Purdham (right) added: "The selections show that we're a true English club now, and that the young lads coming through the system can mix it with the best players in the country.
"It's good news for the club and good news for Louie and Clubby, who have learnt a lot things from Tony Smith and the England coaching staff."
