Jenny Murphy

30th May 1989 1.80m/80kg Outside Centre

Jenny Murphy is a female rugby union player for Ireland. She was a member of the Ireland's 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup squad. She also played at the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow, Russia.

The centre missed last year’s Championship campaign through injury and only returned to the international stage last weekend as she made an impressive cameo in the warm-up defeat to Wales.

The 27-year-old has been here and done it all before but after an extended period on the sidelines is now hungry and determined to help Ireland start a massive year on the right note.

Jenny is a Sky Sports athlete mentor in her spare time. The centre currently plays her club rugby with Old Belvedere RFC.

To date, she has won 23 caps for Ireland. Murphy was named in the 2017 Ireland 6 Nations squad and she is hungry for success ahead of Ireland hosting the World Cup in the summer.
