Jordan Larmour didn't know much about James Lowe when he joined Leinster from the Chiefs three years ago. That has certainly changed in the interim with the New Zealand-born back scoring 28 tries in 43 appearances for the province.
The 28-year-old old Lowe could go from being a club teammate to also an international one later this year. Lowe becomes eligible to play for Ireland in November under the three-year residency rule.
"I didn’t really know much about James Lowe before he came over," said Energia ambassador Larmour on Wednesday.
"I think everyone knows about him now. He’s had a huge impact in Leinster, both on and off the pitch. He’s a big character
"His rugby really does the talking. He shows up every game. He puts his best foot forward. He’s been a huge impact on Leinster.
"Even just getting to learn off him and pick his brains about things. He’s been really good to work with. We’ll wait and see what happens in the future."
"His style of how he plays the game is very good," Larmour added.
"Any team he’d went to, he’d have a big impact on that team and how they’re playing. I think the same impact that he had on Leinster, he could bring to Ireland because he’s such a good player. So it’s exciting."
Energia has launched the first of a two-part social documentary series on Irish and Leinster Rugby high-flyer and Energia ambassador, Jordan Larmour, ahead of the Return to Rugby in Ireland on Saturday 22nd August when Leinster play Munster at Aviva Stadium.
