A whirlwind week for Jordi Murphy, but there was positive news today as he is expected to resume training on Thursday.

He was on media duty today alongside Garry Ringrose as the Ireland team were back on the pitch after a weekend off.

Speaking about their weekend off the Ireland centre said,

We wandered around Fukuoka, it’s a pretty cool city. Took in the sights, got a haircut – that’s why I’m wearing the hat – but it was good timing for us to get a rest and get our bodies right. There was a good bounce in training today.
