England's Under-20 rivals should be very afraid according to London Irish coach Toby Booth who branded his teenage full-back Tom Homer 'a freak'.
The Exiles’ nineteen-year-old, who was instrumental in England’s 41-14 competition opening rout over Wales, drew praise from his club boss after scoring all 22 points in Irish’s Guinness Premiership 22-35 loss to Bath last week.
And Booth is predicting a big future for the prodigious Homer whose deadly boot could fire England to Grand Slam glory.
“Homer is a freak of a player,” said Booth. “We are very privileged to have him with us. He is getting better and better.
“He has come out and commanded the performance of the day on both sides.
“You saw him dominate for England Under-20s against Wales and we expect Tommy to go on to the highest honours and these are the sort of indications that he has the potential to go all the way.
“Tom has not been in the position to kick because he had a groin injury. But now he is back fully fit and raring to go, and showing what he can do.”
