Hype growing around English younger Jacob Umaga as he dismantles Leicester Tigers

The hype is growing around English youngster Jacob Umaga as he helped to single-handedly dismantle a feeble Leicester Tigers side tonight in the Gallagher Premiership.

The 22-year-old who is the nephew of All Black great Tana Umaga, dominated at 10 against a Leicester side that seemed to be void of any real purpose or skill.

Tonight’s game has meant that many Leicester rugby fans are calling for the the Wasps 10 to play in the Eight Nations as a direct back up to Owen Farrell.

With Owen Farrell set to miss England’s game against Italy in the Six Nations, could Umaga slot in against a weaker International side for his first opportunity in the white shirt?

Umaga has scored 5 tries in his last 8 games, that’s an incredible feet for such a young player, coming up against the likes of Farrell and Cipriani recently.

He paired up brilliantly alongside Malakai Fekitoa tonight as they both carved up the Leicester Tigers team that shipped 50 points in Coventry tonight.

This try was just one of many of the great things that he did tonight for the men in black and gold. In this score Fekitoa did most of the hard work, but check the line from Umaga.

England contention surely?
