James Lowe Gives Heartwarming Interview With Young Fan After Win Over Ulster

James Lowe showed once again why he is a firm fan favourite at both Leinster and Ireland, after a heart-warming interview with a young fan, following Leinster's URC victory over Ulster last night.

It was Lowe's first game of the season, and he was asked about his return in an interview with Leinster rugby.

"It's awesome," said Lowe. "Some crowd, some turnout. I know 7.30 on a Saturday night ain't the best tee-time, but sure look, the boys and girls turned out and we were able to put in a performance."

With the interview happening immediately after the game, on the rather accessible RDS pitch, Lowe's interview was then interrupted by a young fan.

Rather than tell him off, Lowe was more than happy to interact with the young supporter, and even ended up interviewing him.

James Lowe: "What's happening, what's up? Hey mate how are you?"

Young fan: "Good."

James Lowe: "What's your name?"

Young fan: "Reuben."

James Lowe: "And what club do you play for Reuben?"

Young fan: "Carlow."

James Lowe: "Ah Carlow, whose from Carlow? The Byrne's are from Carlow, the Byrnes, the Byrnes are from Carlow. I'm to quickly finish this off, and then I'll come see you. Ok cheers fella."

Prior to the match, Leinster head coach Leo Cullen spoke of the importance of the inter-pro derby, particularly with Champions Cup fixtures on the horizon.

“We will be at the halfway point of the league at the end of tonight and if you build a decent lead over the others it gives you scope to do certain things at different stages of the season.

“You can see some clubs are already scrambling to load up their team week to week and whether they run out of steam in terms of managing a larger group of players.

“Games like this bring the intensity level right up which is good in the lead-up to Europe. Because there is not much margin for error in terms of getting the higher seedings because of the way the pool format is, having just the four games.
