WATCH | Owen and Andy Farrell as team-mates in 2008!

We go deep into the World Rugby archive to find father and son combination Andy and Owen Farrell when they played together for Saracens in 2008.

Today, Andy is Ireland’s head coach whilst Owen will be an integral part of an England team coached by Eddie Jones – the same man who gave Owen his first chance over a decade ago…


1. He started off in Rugby League

His education began in rugby league – he joined Wigan St Patricks at the age of eight.

2. School days

It’s well known that the Saracens star went to school with England teammate George Ford, however, it’s less well known that he went onto study Business at Hertfordshire University.

3. Celebration

Farrell celebrates every point he scores by linking his index fingers together to make a ‘JJ’ sign, the Joining Jack salute, Joining Jack being a charity dedicated to the needs of sufferers of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.[ Farrell is also a patron for Duchenne muscular dystrophy charity Duchenne UK.
