WATCH: Tadhg Furlong’s Embrace With His Father Yesterday Was Very Special

Well done boy.

James Furlong is one proud father today and he damn well should be. His son Tadhg did both him and his country proud in a man-of-the-match performance against England to seal the Grand Slam.

Furlong was simply incredible. His work-rate in defence, the solid-based he provided at scrum time, his impressive carries. And that’s before we even talk about his incredible pop pass to Bundee Aki in the build-up to CJ Stander’s try.

The Leinster prop is without question the world’s best tighthead right now. And that’s an accolade he has well and truly earned. Ever since he burst onto the scene against the All Blacks back in 2016, he’s been unstoppable.

You might actually recognise Tadhg’s father James, as that’s actually him in Vodafone’s recent #TeamOfUs campaign video (above) that features the prop. The events in the film are based on actual moments from anecdotes that the players shared, making the clip below all that more special.
