All over the world, there are millions of young children who want to follow in their parents’ footsteps when they grow up, and it seems in Rugby there is no difference.
Here are five youngsters currently playing in the U20 Six Nations, looking to follow in the footsteps of their fathers.
#1. Dan Lancaster, son of Stuart (England U20)
Having not played club rugby since last March, the 19-year-old fly-half has been training alone for much of the past 16 months.
Training at West Park Leeds RUFC, where he started his rugby career and where Leeds Tykes will be playing their National One games, the former Bishop Burton pupil did enough to impress the England coaching staff in the North vs South matches to receive a call-up.
Dan’s father, Stuart, played the majority of his club career at Headingley and following his retirement, he worked as a key member of the side’s Academy between 2000 and 2005. He was then Director of Rugby for two seasons before taking on his first role with England.
