Michael Lynagh has revealed his son Louis, who starred for Harlequins as they triumphed in the Gallagher Premiership final, has two offers to play international rugby.
Despite his fantastic recent form, the 20-year-old speedster was left out of Eddie Jones England squad with his famous Dad revealing he’s had no communication with the head coach.
He wrote on Twitter: “Qualified for England, Australia and Italy.
“Italy and Australia have contacted him within the last fortnight. The RFU and England have NEVER spoken to him about his intentions and goals
“This is not about selection. There is supposed to be a ‘pathway’. How many young talented English kids are in the same boat?
“I am sure Louis has his goals and dreams – you will have to ask him. But my point is how many talented kids live and play in this country, who have represented this nation in age group rugby and are not being encourage and nurtured or even spoken to?
“Communication, feedback and encouragement. This is so important to young aspiring 16,17, 18…20 year olds.”
Here’s a list of rugby legends sons who are set to play in the Six Nations, including a young Lomu.
1. Lucas Brooke (England)
- Age: 19
- Club: London Irish
- Position: back-row
- Dad: Zinzan Brooke (New Zealand)
Brooke, who can play across the back-row or at hooker, grew up in England so is fully qualified to wear the red rose. The powerhouse has represented Berkshire at county level and regularly played for his school, Wellington College.
