Marshawn Lynch conquers an Australian rugby team in the name of Cal football

Cal Football

As Cal football continues their preparations for their Hawaii game on Saturday, Beast Mode was busy claiming important territory for the California Golden Bears on the rugby pitch. Marshawn Lynch has had some busy times with the Bears down under, attending practice and then suiting up with the scout team.

Midweek, he headed down to the rugby club of the South Sydney Rabbitohs to try out the sport.

Some highlights.

Marshawn tried out some kicking (and shouted out his former teammate in Seattle, Steven Hauschka).

And of course there is the ever so important touchdown crotch grab (or in this case, the rugby try crotch grab).

He also hasn’t forgotten how to tackle either, getting right at an Australian reporter!

For those wondering about the shirts in the cover photo, you can check out the custom Beast Mode Cal gear Marshawn got the South Sydney club here.

What a treasure it is to see Marshawn rep Cal again.
