Find out which Rugby Union stars were born each day here at RUCK.

Mark Chisholm

Position: Lock
DOB: 18/09/1981 (age 34)
Current Club: Munster
Previous Clubs: Brumbies
Honours: Australia
Former Wallabies lock Mark Chisholm made his international debut against Scotland in 2004 and over the next few years would cement his place in the Test side. Chisholm, who won 58 Test caps for Australia, hung up his international boots in 2010 when he moved to French side Aviron Bayonnais from the Brumbies. However, following their relegation from the Top 14 the second-row signed with Irish side Munster ahead of the 2015/16 Pro12 season.


Duncan Jones

Position: Prop
DOB: 18/09/1978 (age 37)
Current Club: Ospreys
Previous clubs: Neath
Honours: Wales
Veteran prop Duncan Jones only called time on his career in May of this year due to a foot injury, which was preventing him from training and playing at the best of his ability. Jones, who began his first-class career at Neath 18 years ago, then went on to sign for Ospreys in 2003 and would play for the Swansea-based club for 12 years before retiring. The resilient scrummager also won 57 caps for Wales between 2001 and 2009, playing at two World Cups in 2003 and 2007.


Teddy Thomas

Position: Wing
DOB: 18/09/1993 (age 22)
Current Club: Racing Metro
Previous clubs: Biarritz
Honours: France 7’s, France U18, France U20, France
Try-scoring machine Teddy Thomas, despite his tender years, has already made quite the impression, touching down a hat-trick on debut against Fiji during the autumn internationals in 2014. The young wing then scored a fantastic try a week later against Australia but subsequent to some discipline issues was not included in Philippe Saint-Andre’s 36-man World Cup training squad.
