England forwards coach Matt Proudfoot is so impressed by back-row Tom Curry that he believes he has the potential to become another Richie McCaw.
Here are five things you might not know about the world-class England and Sale SHarks back-rower.
1. Rugby family
They are the son of Bishop Heber High School Head Teacher David Curry and nephew of former England hooker John Olver and cousin of Ealing Trailfinders fly-half Sam Olver.
John was known for his aggressive style of play and holds the somewhat undesirable record for spending the most number of minutes on the England substitutes bench.
He was chosen as captain for the 1993 England rugby union tour of Canada and led England in the two international matches against Canada, for which full caps were not awarded.
