Suddenly, it all made sense why Alfie Barbeary was given a private tour of England's team hotel during the Six Nations. The 19-year-old has long been tipped as a star of a future and he marked his first Premiership start with a stunning hat-trick.

Usually a hooker, Barbeary was handed his full debut in the No 6 jersey and he was unstoppable as he scored three tries in 16 minutes. The youngster described it as a 'dream come true', before returning home to his parents with the play-offs firmly in his sights.

'I can't really believe it,' said Barbeary.
