Wendell Sailor's gifted 15-year-old son Tristan has signed a three-year deal with his former club St George Illawarra.
He joins another player with famous links in Dylan Morris, the younger brother of identical twins and internationals Brett and Josh.
Both Tristan and Dylan have been part of the Dragons' High Performance Unit and the club's junior representative squads.
Ask him about his ambitions in life, and Tristan sounds as confident as his iconic father.
"I want to be a professional footballer," said Tristan, who also excels at Australian rules, surf lifesaving and athletics. "The Dragons' fullback."
Dragons chief executive Peter Doust said: "We are keen to continue developing Tristan through his association with the Dragons. Tristan has proven himself to be a fantastic athlete even at his young age."
With potential fame comes possible pitfalls, and his father managed to find most of those, as he details in his memoir Crossing the Line, released next week. Sailor will feature in a Mercury Weekender interview next week.
Sailor, 39, reveals he was put up for adoption when he was just two days old, and how the underlying pain of that moment manifested itself into issues with alcohol, womanising and party drugs culminating in his two-year ban for testing positive to cocaine during his time at the Waratahs.
In many respects, it is a textbook case of the difficulties the professional footballer finds in coping with the fame and fortune thrust upon them.
Sailor came out the other side after two years at the Dragons before retirement in 2009, but he and his wife Tara are confident Tristan can avoid those mistakes.
"Tristan has always said to me, 'I won't drink when I'm older, Mum'," Tara said.
"I think all that stuff [during Sailor's career] might have actually worked in our favour, for the good. That he's scared of it. [But] of course I'm always concerned."
Says Sailor: "You always want your kids to be better than you are. I didn't know the pressure on him, being my son."
