Keith Earls On How The Irish Lads Have Welcomed Bundee Aki
Make yourself at home.
Bundee Aki appears to be settling into life as an international rugby player with Ireland rather quickly, as he gets set to make his Test debut this month.
The Connacht centre is set to battle it out with Ulster’s Stuart McCloskey for a spot in Ireland’s midfield this weekend, which could see him once again partner up with Robbie Henshaw.
Having racked up over 60 caps for Ireland, Keith Earls is no stranger to Ireland camps, and he says Aki is already making himself at home.
“He’s been himself, which is great, there’s no dancing or anything out of him yet,” Earls said
“He’s playing the music in the gym, you know, just the lads in general are trying to make him feel comfortable like any new lad.
“That’s what we try and do, we’ll try and take the piss out of him a bit but then if you’re not being slagged then you know you’re in trouble.”
Will Aki start this weekend? We’ll find out on Thursday.
