More On Jack McGrath’s Proposed Move To Ulster Rugby

Up north.

Ulster Rugby are hoping to push through a move for Leinster prop Jack McGrath ahead of next season after the Lions loosehead requested a move due to lack of game time.

The proposed transfer was first reported by the Irish Independent yesterday, and now Murray Kinsella of The42.ie has suggested while a contract has not yet been signed and sealed, a move looks likely.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

McGrath has started just one Champions Cup game for Leinster this season as well as 6 PRO14 games, resulting in Munster’s David Kilcoyne usurping him as deputy to Cian Healy with Ireland.

The prop reportedly initiated the conversation about a possible move, with the IRFU willingly facilitating the discussions with Ulster, a process made easier by the fact that he is centrally contracted. Exciting times for Ulster Rugby who have looked much improved under Dan McFarland.
