Bryan Habana has described England speedster Henry Arundell as ‘absolutely insane’ following his starring cameo on his debut against the Wallabies.
The 19-year-old’s performances for the Exiles this season saw him named as Premiership Rugby’s young player of the season for 2021-22.
During the last week alone he has been compared to Matt Giteau. Bryan Habana, David Campese and Jason Robinson.
“I’m guessing by the first touch he had in international rugby and the try he scored, Henry Arundell will probably be in the starting line-up this weekend because that was just absolutely insane, wow,” said Habana , who was appearing on the latest episode of RugbyPass Offload.
““My first touch in international rugby I just had to run away from Josh Lewsey. I didn’t have to bounce two Australians, fend off James O’Connor and score a try.
“That is a little bit better than Bryan Habana. I’m extremely humbled, I’m going into the fifth decade of my life now and I’m extremely grateful that I’m still being compared to some lightning-quick youngsters with ability.”.
