Tadhg Furlong is the give that just keeps on giving.
The Wexford native has enjoyed a phenomenal breakout season for both club and country, solidifying himself as the number one tighthead for Leinster and Ireland with some mammoth performances.
Thos performances haven’t gone unnoticed, with Furlong earning many plaudits from both fans and pundits. Lions coach Warren Gatland even named him as one of his player’s to watch at this year’s Six Nations, with many speculating he could even be the Lions test tighthead this summer.
Furlong’s colourful personality has also been a huge hit with fans and his latest interview is once again sure to be a hit. Furlong sat down with Graham Simmons from Sky Sports to chat about his travel habits and Lions ambitions among other things.
His travel habits include bringing a big suitcase with wheels on it, that contains an extension lead for charging his phone and his own pillow from home. According to Furlong, consistency is key when it comes to sleeping! He admits if he could bring his bed he would!
The highlight of the interview however came when he reveals how he tricked head coach Leo Cullen into believing a brilliant farming backstory.
“Made up a story that I’m not a truffle farmer, I’m a truffle farmer’s son, and that I had three pigs that would go out into the Wexford, I suppose, forestry and snuff out for truffles.”
“Actually, believe it or not I had Leo Cullen on the hook for a while.“
