Fresh from his Grand Slam success, Tadhg Furlong appeared on the Late Late Show last night and proved to be as classy off the pitch as he is on it.
The Leinster and Ireland man was outstanding throughout the Six Nations campaign, overcoming a hamstring strain along the way to prove a crucial component of Joe Schmidt's side. Furlong signaled the new generation of prop with his contribution in the loose as well as the set-piece.
Last night he revealed he benefit's from two main supporters, his grandmothers.

Tadhg Furlong’s granny has the Lourdes candle lighting and throws holy water at the television when he’s in a scrum is the most Irish thing I’ve ever heard. #LateLateShow ☘️
