Pat Lam Has His Say On Connacht Players' Spot Of Crimefighting

Pat Lam Has His Say On Connacht Players' Spot Of Crimefighting

Just over a fortnight ago, Robbie Henshaw had his car broken into and some of his property stolen.

This fact was announced to the world via a post to Instagram. One of the items taken was his laptop.

That Instagram post also featured a warning, Henshaw's enforcer - Bundee Aki - was coming for whoever was in possession of the computer.

It's wasn't a joke.

Over the weekend, the Sunday World published footage of Connacht players, including Aki and Kieran Marmion, turning up to a Galway estate seeking out the individual they believed had the laptop. They had located it using the 'Find My Laptop' app.

A confrontation ensued and the Gardaí arrived to break up the ruckus. Henshaw did get his laptop back.

While he likes that his players show camaraderie on and off the pitch, Connacht coach Pat Lam, quoted by the Irish Independent, expressed his view that it was not the 'smart' thing to do.

It's good to see that the boys look out for each other on and off the field. It wasn't a smart thing to do and the boys know that.

Asked if the players involved would be facing disciplinary action, Lam went quiet on the matter.

No, that's probably all I have got to say on it really.
