What Owen Farrell said to his coach while his wife was in labour is BRILLIANT!

Nobody can question England captain Owen Farrell’s commitment to his club Saracens.

It’s 2.30pm and his wife Georgie has been in labour since the night before with the birth of their first child is a mere half-hour away.

What does the fly-half do?

According to Sarries head coach Mark McCall, he called to say he might still be able to make their Champions Cup quarter-final against Glasgow –

“He phoned me at 2.30 and said ‘in the next half hour’…,” said McCall. “I said ‘Owen, the game starts at 3.15! I don’t actually know if he’s had the baby yet.

“We had a rough cut-off point. His wife went into labour last night. At 8.30am he was pretty confident it would all happen, but it didn’t.

“But the important thing was that he was where he should have been – with his wife.”
