James Lowe Was Absolutely Hilarious In Yesterday’s Post-Match Press Conference

Cool as you like.

James Lowe is settling into life in Ireland pretty well. The former Chiefs star has hit the ground running with some incredible displays on the wing, and looks set to become a legend in Leinster.

The Maori All Blacks star has only played six games so far for the province. But has already bagged himself a rather impressive five tries and three assists. Not a bad return at all.

He was instrumental once again yesterday as Leinster defeated Scarlets, getting on the scoresheet twice and picking up the man of the match award. But it’s not just what he does on the pitch that has made him so popular. It’s how he does it.

Lowe plays with an infectious smile on his face. In everything he does you can see he absolutely loves what he’s doing. He’s Leinster’s answer to Simon Zebo and players like that are brilliant to have around any set-up.

Having someone like him around is not only brilliant for veterans like Sean O’Brien and Johnny Sexton. But fantastic for brining younger lads through. Play with a smile and don’t be afraid to express yourself. Lowe says he’s been impressed with what’s coming through the ranks so far.

“We’ve got young fellas coming in. I guess a lot of the academy players have been training with us full-time for the last couple of weeks, man.

It doesn’t matter who comes back down from the international set-up [with Ireland], they’ve got to catch up to us.”

The New Zealander had everyone in stitches though, in his attempts to remember Will Connors’ real name, a young Leinster openside who made his mark off the bench yesterday.

“What’s Porridge’s name? Porridge, our reserve No.7.

“I only know him by his nickname. I’ve got to learn a lot of names. Will! That’s it. I don’t know if he knows my name either!”
