Rugby is in Owen Farrell's blood.
His dad Andy needs no introduction. A dual-code international and rugby league great, he captained Wigan Warriors and Great Britain before transferring to rugby union where he played for Saracens.
On his mum's side, his grandad Keiron O'Loughlin played more than 250 times for Wigan in the 1970s, while his uncle Sean (Keiron's son), is the current Wigan Warriors captain.
Liam Farrell, another Wigan Warriors player, is a distant cousin.
But Owen Farrell is a star in his own right, to say the least.
His education began in rugby league - he joined Wigan St Patricks at the age of eight- but rugby union is where he's flourished.
In 2005, when his dad signed for Saracens, Farrell began attending St George's School in Harpenden, where he was introduced to the new code - and he hasn't looked back.
Just a little over three years later, on October 5 2008, he became the youngest ever player to appear in English professional rugby, making his debut aged 17 and 11 days.
