Henry Thomas looks to have all the necessary attributes to be a top-level Test tight-head for years to come.
A product of Millfield School, Thomas played U16 cricket for England but was focused on becoming a professional rugby player. Sale Sharks snapped him up when he opted to go to Manchester University and the two have never looked back.
He has already suffered a couple of serious injuries but Thomas shone for Sale during the 2012-13 campaign's closing stages and helped drag them to Premiership safety.
He is firmly on England's radar and was part of the 2013 Six Nations squad and was called up for Test duty for the summer's tour to Argentina.
