The four-minute video shows this trial match that heavily features Ford and Farrell in particular.
It’s clear to see that even at this young age – both of these guys were head and shoulders above the rest.
Playing at 10 and 12 – these two were deadly when they linked up.
At the 1.14 mark of the video we watch as the England duo link together on a brilliant wrap-around that unlocks the Millfield defence.
Mako Vunipola is clearly on the wrong end of the result in this video but it doesn’t stop him from throwing his considerable weight around.
