Marshawn Lynch brought ‘Beast Mode’ to the rugby pitch

Since retiring from football at the conclusion of last season, Marshawn Lynch has kept himself busy with a variety of adventures. The former running back’s latest one features him trying rugby on for size.

Lynch is currently in Sydney, Australia awaiting the season-opener of his alma mater, the California Golden Bears, as they prepare to kick off the college football season Down Under against Hawaii. With some free time on his hands until Friday’s game, Lynch not only ran the scout team for Cal, but he also visited the South Sydney Rabbitohs of the National Rugby League.

The Rabbitohs seemed pleased to have Lynch in attendance, and it sure looked like he had a good time as well. He even got so swept up in the excitement of the sport that he couldn’t help but tackle a local reporter.

With no touchdowns in his near future, Lynch took the opportunity to revisit his signature crotch-grab celebration — this time on the rugby pitch.

It’s going to be hard not to miss watching Lynch on Sundays, but at least he’s continued to be extremely entertaining in retirement.
