Ireland prop Jack McGrath will leave Leinster for Ulster after the 2019 World Cup to enhance his worldwide possibilities. McGrath, contracted to the Irish Rugby Football Union, has received fifty-seven caps but has slipped at the back of provincial colleague Cian Healy in the loosehead pecking order following the veteran’s resurgence. “I have loved a large quantity of success at Leinster; however, I sense that searching beyond the World Cup to the next section of my profession, I will benefit from the possibility in the Ulster environment.” “I’m now fully fit after a disrupted begin to the season and am looking ahead to set all my power into helping Leinster’s power to shield the European and PRO14 titles and finishing this season on a high.” McGrath has received three Six Nations titles with Ireland and two European titles with Leinster.
IRFU overall performance director David Nucifora stated: “Jack has made a tough decision which he believes will advance his case for choice for Ireland. You need to recognize a participant with such ambition. “Leinster is an extraordinary surrounding; however, it is a testimony to the work that each one four provinces are doing that players are searching for possibilities inside Ireland to improve their global careers.”
