- He was a bit part figure at the World Cup despite scoring five tries against Chile
England wonderkid Henry Arundell lit up France’s Top 14 with a hat-trick on his Racing 92 debut against Toulon on the Cote d’Azur on Sunday night.
Arundell was a bit part figure for England at the World Cup. He scored five tries against minnows Chile but other than was a marginalised presence in national head coach Steve Borthwick’s plans.
The 21-year-old moved to French side Racing after the demise of his boyhood club London Irish and wasted no time in impressing for the Parisian side.
After returning from the World Cup, Arundell’s Racing bow came in a 31-26 defeat by Toulon at the Stade Felix Mayol.
Despite his team’s loss, Arundell – who has made a habit of scoring outrageous individual tries in his short career to date – was at his best, this time wearing the blue and white stripes of Racing.

Arundell’s first was a brilliant effort and he ended with a treble, responsible for three of his team’s four scores.
Toulon was also the venue where Arundell scored a brilliant length-of-the-field effort for Irish in 2022.
