There will be a familiar name in France's Under-20 squad when they face Ireland in Donnybrook on February 24th. 

Daniel Brennan, the son of former Ireland star Trevor, has been named in the squad for the forthcoming five matches. He is one of three Toulouse players to feature in the squad.

After moving to Toulouse in 2002, Trevor Brennan settled in the city with his family after retiring in 2007. His son Daniel joined Toulouse's youth teams and has worked his way through the age-levels signing a two-year contract in June. 

Brennan Jr. has already worn the blue of France at underage level. Last summer, he captained the Under-19 side in a tournament in South Africa, and has also represented France at younger underage levels.

Ireland and France meet in the third round of the tournament, in what could be one of the more intriguing storylines of the tournament.
