I don't know anything about rugby so I don't know if this is accurate:
Yes, that is a very typical interview with a rugby player.
All rugby players are barking mad, as our cousins across the pond will corroborate.
I only played one season of rugby [about a half a century ago], so it's one of the few areas where I'm not a know-it-all, but methinks maybe that interview should be put forth as an example in the "similies...metaphors, etc." thread. Having said that, it's refreshing (?) to see a sports interview where it's a bit more than an athlete grunting his agreement with the interviewer's astute (?) analysis, and then going on to repeat some irrelevant cliche.

That was hilarious. If only Bill Belichick adopted the technique of the continual non-sequitur/mixed metaphor as an interview tactic, perhaps people west of the Connecticut River would think more highly of the Patriots.
They played this on CBC Radio One on Thursday. Bizarre!
It was quite the challenge to make sense of it. I had to give it 110% and take it one sentence at a time.
Understood him perfectly!
