‘250,000 views and counting!’ – Bizarre Max Lahiff interview goes viral

Bristol Bears’ Max Lahiff has become something of a cult hero since arriving at the club in 2019.

His ireverrant tweets and wholehearted performances have endeared the former Bath man to Bears fans no end recently.

And how the rest of the world are being treated to the 31-year-old prop’s alternative take on the world, with a hilarious pre-match interview from Friday night picking up almost 250,000 views at the time of writing.

Enjoy it in full here:


His take on the match includes ‘running around talking to my ancestors’ and describing rugby as ‘a macabre sport of gladiatorial confrontation’.

‘Accidental Partridge’ – a twitter account dedicated to finding real life instances of Alan Partridge-esque appearances in the media – reposted the interview this morning, and surely now only stardom awaits for Lahiff!
