The Houston Strikers are pleased to announce the signing of scrum half Connor Murphy a product of the London Irish & IRFU Irish Exiles rugby pathway. Connor comes to the Strikers with experience in the Anglo Welsh competition, and the English Championship and British & Irish Cup competition.
Conner said, "I'm over the moon to be joining the Strikers. After speaking to Justin I felt that Houston was the place for me to continue with my development as a rugby player. I can't wait to get to America and jump in with a new group of players and coaches. Major League Rugby is going to be very new and different to the English leagues and it's a challenge I'm looking forward to."
Strikers Head Coach, Justin Fitzpatrick said, "Connor is a talented young scrum half who brings a wealth of experience and pedigree to the Strikers. Scrumhalf is a critical position within any team and having a first class operator there like Connor will add great value to the squad."
