#3. He started off in Rugby League
His education began in rugby league – he joined Wigan St Patricks at the age of eight. When his father Andy signed for Saracens in 2005, his family moved to Harpenden in Hertfordshire, where Owen at the age of 13 or 14 was introduced to rugby union for the first time.
He became the youngest ever player to appear in English professional rugby, making his debut aged 17 and 11 days. However, this record was later beaten by schoolmate Ford.
