London Irish’s latest superstar has shared a notepad of goals he set himself as a child, and it only highlights why he is becoming such a great player.
Arundell burst onto the scene for both club and country in the last 12 months, continuously providing moments that get rugby fans of their feet.
None more so than his 95 metre stunning score against Toulon in last year’s European Challenge Cup – any reason to watch that back again…

But speaking with BT Sport, Arundell has shared a list of goals he set himself as a ten year old and it proves that since a very young age, he has had the determination to go all the way.
It also is evidence of how far he is come in a remarkably short space of time, ticking off 5 out of the 7 goals already, at the age of only 20.
He's brought with him a notebook he kept when he was 10 years old, featuring his rugby ambitions.
What were yours at that age and how did they turn out? 🤔

Looking at the list, there are two big boxes left to tick: Playing for England in 2029 world cup and playing for The Lions.
The first of these is looking very likely, since Arundell has already broken into the England Squad, he could have even achieved this by later this year.
As for The Lions, if he just keeps doing what he is already doing regularly, it seems the sky is only the limit for the versatile back three player – for all we know he could be the first name on the team sheet come the next Lions tour.
