Leinster Fans Need To See New Signing James Lowe's Incredible Reaction To 'Scare Cam' Prank

Leinster Fans Need To See New Signing James Lowe's Incredible Reaction To 'Scare Cam' Prank
By Gavan Casey

The more you see of James Lowe in Super Rugby, the more you appreciate what a coup it was for Leinster to secure his signature for next season, and why the Chiefs are devastated to lose him.

Take, for example, Nigel Yalden's Super Rugby Team of the Week in The New Zealand Herald, or to give the article its full title, 'Team of the week: Brilliant James Lowe at best'.

"Quite brilliant in New Plymouth" is how Yalden begins his assessment of Lowe's display versus the Reds of Queensland.

Whether he had ball in hand or was defending, whether he was fielding a kick or carving off metres with his own strong, accurate left boot, Lowe was a key figure through the entirety of the match as the Chiefs rediscovered a portion of their collective mojo.

Add to this his stunning try - during which 'he almost took the mickey', so said the commentator - and you'll understand why a reinvigorated Leinster are looking forward to some of that Lowe mojo when the 24-year-old traverses the globe in the summer.

But the flying winger isn't just about the fancy dan stuff. There's an aggression and grit to his work which almost spilled onto the streets - or more pertinently, into a hedge - in recent days.

Yesterday, the Chiefs uploaded their latest 'Scare Cam' video to Facebook, in which Lelia Masaga took to a ghillie suit to scare the Christ out of oncoming teammates as they left training. While big men such as Liam Messam and Taleni Seu had the absolute shite frightened out of them as Masaga burst from the bushes, James Lowe reacted with all the hallmarks of trained martial artist - his conspicuous fright morphing into a chin guard and wide boxing stance within the space of a millisecond. Frankly speaking, James Lowe was ready to go at less than a second's notice.

You can check out his reaction at about 2:45 in the below video, but we'd recommend watching it in full so you can also see 2011 World Cup-winning All Black Stephen 'Beaver' Donald's extremely blasé response while walking alone.

The moral of the story for Leinster's players next season: never, ever scare James Lowe. Not least while hiding in shrubbery. That guy is a wildman.
