The son of a former Ireland international made his underage debut for France this week

Trevor Brennan’s son Dan looks like a great prospect.

A FEW WEEKS ago we did a story about Dan Brennan, Trevor Brennan’s monstrous son who is a second row in the Toulouse academy.

Brennan had been selected in a France U17 squad for a tournament against USA, Italy and England and he made his debut against the Americans on Tuesday.

It was an easy 65-6 win for the French but the Brennan family were delighted that Dan came off the bench nonetheless.


It will be interesting to see how Brennan’s career progresses and whether he remains in France or, as former Leinster coach Matt Williams suggested to his father, returns to Ireland.

Dan Brennan has grown a lot since this photo was taken after Toulouse’s Heineken Cup semi-final win over Munster back in 2003.
