England captain Owen Farrell receives a lot of criticism and hate for his in the field actions, but off the pitch he really is a great guy.
Here are three times he proved it down the years.
1. His celebration and it’s meaning
The England fly-halves celebration involves linking both his index fingers together as he holds his hands out in front of him. And the reason for his celebration stems from his close relationship with one of his biggest fans – nine-year-old Jack Johnson.
Sports-mad Jack suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a debilitating muscle-wasting disorder that will leave him crippled and unable to walk. Having learned about Jack’s condition a few years ago, Farrell has been a big supporter of his in raising awareness of the charity Joining Jack.
