MARO ITOJE | FT How To Spend It

“When Maro Itoje takes to the pitch in Paris on February 2 to begin England’s Six Nations campaign, he will carry a heavy burden of expectation on his shoulders. The 25-year-old second row – nicknamed “the Pearl” because he’s such a precious talent – has been hailed as a “once in a generation” player, a future captain of England and the British Lions. Back in November, a World Cup winner’s medal just eluded him, but former England captain Martin Johnson described the team’s 19-7 victory over the All Blacks in the semi-final as the greatest performance ever by an England team. The man of that match? Maro Itoje.”
