Leinster's new signing gave Tadhg Furlong a lesson in rugby against the Lions

Very cheeky...

The Lions took on the NZ Maori on Saturday morning in what will be the last major game for the test team prior to next weekend's game with the All Blacks.

There's a host of Irish players playing for the Lions with Tadhg Furlong, Conor Murray, Jonathan Sexton, Sean O'Brien and Peter O'Mahony all starting the game.

But there's a player starting at fullback for the NZ Maori who will be very familiar to a lot of Irish rugby fans.

We're talking about Leinster signing James Lowe, who will link up with Leo Cullen's men in the coming season.

In the 38th minute, Tadhg Furlong was pinged for not releasing the man before competing for the ball on the ground, which resulted in Jaco Peyper penalising him.

But Jame Lowe wasn't content with his future Leinster teammate giving away such soft penalties and on the off chance he'd do something similar next season, decided to give the prop a quick lesson.

How very kind of you, James...
