‘The toughest position’ – Eddie Jones reveals three contenders to replace Owen Farrell

#1. Jacob Umaga

  • Age: 19
  • Club: Wasps

With his dad Mike and uncle Tana playing at international level, it was inevitable that Jacob Umaga would take up rugby and do well in his own right.

.In June 2016, Jacob moved to the Wasps Academy and two months later scored a thrilling long-range try for England U18 against France in Cape Town. His U20 debut was in the 59-17 win over France at Exeter and he landed all his five place-kicks against Wales six days later along the way to England’ss 37-21 victory at Colwyn and he made four appearances in the World U20 Championship in Georgia in June 2017.

He captained sides at Kenilworth from U9-U16 and won representative honours with the England mixed U18 touch rugby team. In 2020 he received his first senior call-up for the Guinness Six Nations.

DID YOU KNOW? He is related to the late great All Blacks powerhouse Jerry Collins (cousin-once-removed)
