Louis Lynagh, whose father Michael captained the Wallabies, has been called up by Eddie Jones for England’s extended 45-player squad.
The 20-year-old outside back, who was born in Italy but grew up in England, plays for Harlequins in the English premiership.
Michael Lynagh is regarded as one of the greats of Australian rugby with the fly-half playing 72 Tests during his decorated international career, which was highlighted by winning the 1991 Rugby World Cup.
But he isn’t the only Southern Hemisphere legends sons who could be playing in the Six Nations in the future.
