Jordi Murphy Set To Swap Leinster For Rival Irish Province
On the move.
Ireland back-row Jordi Murphy is set to leave Leinster at the end of the current season and join provincial rivals Ulster according to a report in the Irish Times this morning.
Murphy has been with Leinster for seven years, but has seen his playing time restricted this season due to the overwhelming competition in the back-row.
The move will see him once again link up with Jono Gibbes, who coached him for three seasons at Leinster. Murphy also worked under Les Kiss when he was Ireland’s defensive coach.
Ulster have already secured the services of another Irish international next season, in the form of Wasps tighthead prop Marty Moore.
