First episode in three-part miniseries on Leinster's 'jaw-dropping' Jordan Lamour released

Energia has released the first video in a three-part series on Leinster Rugby’s Jordan Larmour.

Lamour is one of Leinster's most talented young players having been refered to as "jaw-dropping" and "prodigiously talented wonderkid" since his senior debut in September 2017.

In the first of this miniseries created by Energia, Larmour tells of his teenage years, revealing his ambitions and motivations as he rose through the schools’ rugby programme with St Andrew’s before being recruited for the Leinster Academy and quickly thereafter the senior squad.

In episode one ‘The Rise of Jordan’, Larmour explains, “Growing up as a kid, and all through school, it's all I ever wanted to do. I wanted to be a professional rugby player”.

“When I got the call from Leo, I was going to start and get my first cap, it was just a really special day for me and my family”.

Every time you get an opportunity to put on the blue jersey you just want to take it. It's why we play the game, we want to win. Once you get that taste for it, you just want more of it.
