Tadhg Furlong's Instagram Masterpiece Allows Us To 'Meet The Leinster Backs'

Tadhg Furlong's Instagram Masterpiece Allows Us To 'Meet The Leinster Backs'

Following last year's Champions Cup final win against Racing 92, Tadhg Furlong provided some insight about his teammates, allowing us to 'Meet The Forwards' via his Instagram stories.

Saturday evening's Pro14 final victory against Glasgow gave a chance Furlong to make the sequel: 'Meet The Backs'.

Usually, a sequel is a letdown compared to the original. Not so this time. 'Meet The Backs' is more penetrating than 'Meet The Forwards'.

Highlights include the discovery that Luke McGrath is nicknamed both The Ferret and DS Arnott (a character in Line of Duty) and that his father puts Tabasco sauce on the skirting boards; that James Lowe spends a lot of time in Avoca; Robbie Henshaw apparently has an album on Spotify and that Garry Ringrose is into beekeeping and also has an obsession with Jonathan Davies, though is not specified whether that is the current or ex-Wales international.
