Independent.ie caught up with Jordi Murphy and he was only too happy to dish the dirt on his Ireland team-mates

The 23 year-old Spanish-born flanker is one of the biggest prospects in Irish rugby and after 12 minutes in last year's championship winning campaign, has already featured more after two rounds of the 2015 campaign.

A start in Rome, 20 minutes against France and a possible starting berth against England with Jamie Heaslip ruled out through injury and Murphy is becoming a key part of the international set-up.

Who is his favourite sports star outside of rugby? What boxset is he currently watching? Is his favourite app really a car parking payment app?

And most importantly, just what are his Irish team-mates really like away from the pitch?
