A great achievement for the son of one of my favourite ex Leinster players.

In fairness he's played u17 and u18 and has lived in France most of his life.

Brennan, who was already 6’2″ and 121kg (19 stone) at the age of 14


That's just wrong.

And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Have you seen Will Skelton's little bro? 6'8" and a whole lot of stone when he was 13. There's a pic of him beside a 6'4" rugby player who looks like a midget.

Yeah, Logan Skelton. I hate to correct you but he was actually 2.06 m (6'9") aged 13, i.e taller than brother Will. Last I heard he had hit 7 foot but wasn't very committed to the rugby. Guess he'd be 16 now.

Daniel Brennan isn't quite as tall as Trevor but seems to have a much more powerful build, allegedly along with his dad's mobility. Could be a serious, serious player.

No worries. Sure I couldn't even remember what weight he was. Focking big. No athlete though.

if youre saying what I think youre saying I think I'm right in saying that that no longer applies (he just has to be named in Farnce designated 2nd team matchday panel)

There were three other players in that squad worth mentioning.
Roumat - Is he a blast from the past - Olivier IIRC?
Cretin - Is he really?
Fartass- Does he really?
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

AFAIK he must be capped v another team that is designated as a second national team

Nope. You have to be selected in the matchday panel for the first or next national selection against another countries first or next national selection respectively

Brennan is a 6'2" lock from I can make out which is way too small - at over 120kg he's going to be tricky to lift as well. Either way, if he's not playing here he wouldn't be on the radar. Best of luck to him though!

Tight Head prop AFAIK, so it's him that'll be doing the lifting, no?

Yupp, he's 6'4" and a (scarily lean) 125 kg now, plays tight-head prop.

No, the articles I read started with something like the 6'2" son of Ireland lock Trevor Brennan. Confusing in two points - 1 Trevor Brennan was a flanker and 2 I'm still unsure as to who was 6'2" - the father or the son
