Tadhg Furlong & Tom Curry’s DJ Duo Officially Have A Name & Their Own Merchandise

Scrum and bass.

One of the lighter parts of this year’s British and Irish Lions tour has been the bromance between Ireland’s Tadhg Furlong and England’s Tom Curry.

The two forwards hit it off early in the tour and appear to have struck up a really good friendship that has resulted in them forming their very own DJ duo.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

It all started when Curry got his hands on a set of decks that the staff brought over to entertain the players. Furlong didn’t take long to convince and the arrival of Josh “Navicii” Navidi couldn’t have been better timed.

Speaking on this week’s episode of The Ultimate Test, Furlong revealed that the band is called “Scrum and Bass” and showed off some of their ‘official’ merchandise.

“I’ve never seen a grown man so excited, he was like a kid at Christmas,” Furlong said of Curry’s decks discovery.

“I was like ‘ok, we’ll give this a lash’ because I listen to a lot of music myself.

“It kind of took off from there and Tom’s mind is after running away with him a little bit! He called us ‘Scrum and Bass’ and we have merch printed. Gemma here with the Lions printed us off a load of merch. 

“We got to a stage then where we didn’t have a notion how to work the decks, no clue. We were looking up YouTube videos and messing around. I think our idea of DJing was just scratching the wheel! But what we found out is it is way, way harder than that!

“So Josh Navidi is an actual DJ, he DJs in a few clubs in Cardiff and he really fancied it… and it’s kind of gone from there!”

You can see what else Furlong had to say about the new band below. The DJ feature starts at around the 9:50 mark.
