Canadian wing Taylor Paris is set to become the youngest person to play at a Rugby World Cup, yet he is undaunted by becoming a record breaker.
In fact, Paris, who turns 19 on October 6, during the tournament, admits he's keen to learn as much as he can from his more experienced team-mates.
That said, he is realistic enough to know that the only real learning he will do is in the heat of battle as the Canucks take on Tonga, France, Japan and host nation New Zealand in Pool A.
"I have been rooming with Adam Kleeberger, and I also speak to Ander Monro and Pat Riordan and they help me out, but I think there is only so much you can learn from other people telling you. I think the only real way to find out what these tournaments are like is just to experience it yourself."
Paris is already well-versed in setting records, becoming the youngest player to debut for the Canada Sevens team as a 17-year-old last year before breaking into the senior team against Belgium last November.
"I broke my hand about four months ago and so I wasn't sure how I would go, so when I saw my name in the 50-man roster for the World Cup I was so excited," he said.
"When Kieran (Crowley, Canada's coach) told me that I had made the final squad, it was just so, so exciting. This is the absolute pinnacle."
Thretton Palamo is currently the youngest World Cup player - he was 19 years and eight days old when he came on as a replacement for the USA in a pool game against South Africa in the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
