GRADED | What happened to the 5 most exciting young England players of 2010
4. Matt Mullan
What they said then:The story of Matt Mullan’s rise is an inspiring one for any hard-working academy player struggling to make the grade. d the 22-year-old not suffered a nasty hamstring injury in the Amlin Challenge Cup in October he would almost certainly have played a Test already.
What they’ve done since: Went onto make 17 appearances for England while also making over 100 appearances for Wasps, cementing himself as a fan favourite with the black and gold faithful.
However, the 31-year-old had off-the-field matters that drained his motivation for rugby and to rehabilitate from knee surgery that had sidelined him since May 2018.
He’s now a Rugby Coach, qualified Personal Trainer & providing online training plans.
