'I've never seen him before in my life:' Tadhg Furlong laughs off bizarre interruption to his post-match interview

LEINSTER RECORDED A comprehensive win over Northampton Saints last night in the Champions Cup.

They came away with a deserved bonus point and some of the players made their European bows. Adam Byrne and Ross Byrne both enjoyed strong outings on their European debuts, while Rory O’Loughlin marked his with a try as part of a 37-10 rout.

Tadhg Furlong was immense once again. Along with Jack McGrath, he flourished in the scrum to overpower the Saints front-row, and was duly awarded the man-of-the-match award.

But in winning the gong, he got more than he bargained for. While being interviewed before the award presentation, someone intrudes from the side and puts his arm around Furlong. The Leinster player laughed the incident off and said “I’ve never seen him before in my life,” while being handed his award.
