France teenager Romain Ntamack will win his first cap against Wales in Friday’s Six Nations opener in Paris.
The 19-year-old centre is the son of former Les Bleus wing Emile and he will play alongside Wesley Fofana with Mathieu Bastareaud not included in the 23-man squad.
We’ve decided to put together an XV of potential Six Nations stars who have famous rugby dads….
Fullback: Adam Hastings (Son of Gavin Hastings)
Hastings has come through the Scottish international set-up. He was also named in the extended Scotland squad in the lead up to the 2018 Six Nations championship game vs Italy. He has gained caps at Scotland U16, Scotland U18, Scotland U19 and Scotland U20. He is the son of ex-Scotland international rugby union captain Gavin Hastings; and the nephew of ex-Scotland international rugby union player Scott Hastings.
Winger: Harry Mallinder (Son of Jim Mallinder)
The past 12 months have seen Harry Mallinder, son of Jim go from relative unknown to a star of the Saints first team. Since making the move into full-time rugby after completing his studies at Rugby School, where he captained the first team, Mallinder has proved himself to be a real talent across the Saintbacklinene.
Centre: Alex Lozowski (Son of Rob Lozowski)
Centre: Owen Farrell (Son of Andy Farrell)
The fly-halves career progressed at the same rate as his father’s Andys – temporarily being the youngest player to play in the English Premiership in 2008. Now an England regular, Farrell has won multiple Six Nations and played a key role in the drawn Lions drawn series against New Zealand in 2017. He’s quickly heading for legendary status.
Winger: Romain Ntamack (Son of Émile Ntamack)
Born in 1999, Romain is the son of former France star Emile Ntamack. He has made 26 Toulouse appearances following his debut in 2017 and scored 56 points. Ntamack’s debut for Les Bleus will come against Wales, but he has already played for the U20 side and the French Barbarians.
