Israel Folau's brother is just 20 years old... he is also a complete beast

John Folau is making a name for himself in rugby league.

ISRAEL FOLAU IS a sporting alien. That is probably the only way to describe the three-sport superstar who makes offloading the ball one-handed look so easy. There is so much justified hype around Folau that it must be hard if you are trying to break into the same business under the same name.

John Folau is Israel’s brother and he plays for the Parramatta Eels rugby league team in the NRL. He isn’t as highly regarded as his sibling just yet, but after scoring his first and second professional try over the weekend he will probably start getting a good bit of coverage himself.

He isn’t just a talent going forward though, the younger Folau caught peoples attention with this mini-earthquake of a hit last August.

He is obviously a great prospect but he can still definitely learn a few things from his big bro.
