There is still plenty of time for these 5 breakout players to make a name for themselves at the Six Nations 2020. Fans should keep a tab on each of the future rugby stars for years to come. 

Caelan Doris – Ireland

Caelan Doris made his Six Nations debut with Ireland as the team’s No. 8. Unfortunately, Doris was knocked out of the game just minutes into it due to a concussion. Doris bounced back with an excellent off the bench performance against England on matchday 2 and now there is an expectation the 21-year-old will be back in the starting team.

The Leinster player was promoted to the club’s first-team after just one year in the academy. With more strong performances for both club and country, Doris could be one of Ireland’s top player for years to come. 

Louis Carbonel – France

Louis Carbonel recently turned 21 and could receive a debut with France’s Six Nations team this year. The problem with Carbonel being included and on the pitch comes with France’s performances so far. The French lead the table and coach Fabian Galthie could be reluctant to blood the young No.10. Carbonel still has plenty of time on his side. He has starred for France’s Toulon in the Pro 14 and has won two World Under-20 Championships. 

Louis Rees-Zammit – Wales

Gloucester’s 19-year-old wing Louis Rees-Zammit could see his big Six Nations debut come against England. It is a debut that Welsh rugby fans are calling for after his impressive performances for club team Gloucester. Rees-Zammit made a rapid rise into Gloucester’s first-team. The 6ft 3in wing isn’t just physical and capable of plowing through tacklers. His speed ensures that when he breaks free it isn’t easy to catch him. 

George Furbank – England

George Furbank labelled his first two caps for England as a “baptism by fire”. The Northampton Saints full-back started England’s Six Nations opener against France away from home in the place of injured player Anthony Watson. The 23-year-old held his own during the two matches and should see plenty of more time for England at the tournament. 

Magnus Bradbury – Scotland

Scotland’s Magnus Bradbury maybe the oldest player (24) on this list, but he still has plenty of potential to offer at this stage in his career. Bradbury replaced Jamie Ritchie in Scotland’s Six Nations squad due to the latter’s injury problems. The No. 8 plays his club rugby for Pro 14’s Edinburgh Rugby and ahead of the Six Nations 2020, signed a new contract with the Scottish team.
