Jordi Murphy, a rugby player from Ireland, has decided to retire after this season. During his career, Jordi was part of three teams that won the Six Nations titles and scored a memorable try when Ireland beat New Zealand in 2016 for the first time ever. He made the decision with his family looking forward to what’s next for them in life.
Playing for both my home team Leinster and current team Ulster are moments that I will always remember fondly. Representing my country is a huge honour and something I’m really proud of. I’m really looking forward to helping out the team this season.
In 2011, Murphy made his Leinster debut and later went on to win three league titles and the European Cup with them in 2018. After that, he moved to Ulster that same summer.
He played for Ireland’s national team 30 times after his first game in 2014 during the Six Nations tournament. He also took part in the World Cup all over 2015 and 2019.
Murphy scored a total of three goals throughout his time playing for Ireland, with one of them especially famous — he scored against New Zealand during a match in Chicago that year which caused Ireland to win against them for the first time ever!
