DANIEL BRENNAN, THE son of former Ireland international Trevor, has been named in the France squad for this year’s World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia.

Brennan, who in June last year signed a two-year contract with Toulouse, was already a France international at U17 and U18 levels and was named in their squad for this year’s U20 Six Nations tournament.

He did not see any game time, however.

Brennan made his debut for the French U17 side against the USA in 2015, with the highlight of his underage career coming when he captained his side to a 28-26 win over England.

Now 19, Brennan was already 6’2″ and 121kg (19 stone) at the age of 14 and came through the Toulouse underage set-up before securing a contract with the Top 14 outfit last year.

France take on Argentina, South Africa and the hosts in Pool C of the tournament which begins on 31 May.
