Bristol Bears front rower Max Lahiff has reacted to the unexpected attention he’s been getting this week after an interview went viral due to the bizarre nature of what he had to say. The club has since released a second, older video that is similar in nature.
Lahiff captured the attention of fans with a fairly ridiculous interview that left the interviewer in stitches and perplexed those watching on.
Similarly – but totally different – to fellow front row entertainer Joe Marler, Lahiff’s way of speaking has struck a chord and propelled his name onto the radar of rugby fans around the globe.
Don’t really know what to say about this… 🤷♂️

The powerful 31-year-old was quite surprised and amused by the responses.
I’m quite touched and perplexed 😂 at the responses to this video. Always fun to resonate with people when one delves into their eccentricities. Up the bears, and let’s get weird and wonderful for the rest of the season, in the best kind of way. Growwwwwl!

With a few million views on that video, Bristol Bears’ social media have since released another funny interview with him, which also went down well.
So, you’ve just discovered @LahiffMax… 😂
