It was only a matter of time before Daniel Brennan joined the professional ranks.

From the moment his dad, former Ireland international Trevor Brennan, tweeted this picture back in 2012, his son's physical gifts were obvious.

Amazingly, that photo of Daniel fireman's carrying an ex-professional was taken when he was just 14. The younger Brennan subsequently progressed through the youth ranks with Toulouse, where his dad won two Heineken Cups as a player, before he was called into the French U17 squad in March 2015.

He has continued to improve in the meantime, with today marking a special milestone in his rugby career. Toulouse tweeted out a brilliant photo of Brennan senior and junior signing Daniel's first professional contract, a two-year development deal.

It will be interesting to see how Brennan improves in the professional ranks, and Irish fans will hope that he doesn't develop into a towering presence in the French pack that will torment Ireland for years to come.
