Irish rugby hero takes time out of Six Nations celebrations…to watch El Clasico
Jordi Murphy gladly resumed in the rugby celebrations last night, but only after watching his beloved Barcelona defeat arch-rivals Real Madrid in El Clasico.
The Irish squad returned home to a hero's welcome at Dublin Airport with the Six Nations celebrations getting underway surrounded by a huge crowd of supporters yesterday afternoon.
While the squad were left to bask in the glory of a brilliant championship victory after one of the most exhilarating days of rugby ever witnessed in the Six Nations, Barcelona-born Murphy couldn't miss the big soccer match at the Nou Camp.
The 23 year-old was born in Barcelona and named after the patron saint St Jordi of Catalonia. The versatile back rower witnessed his team win 2-1 on the night, with Luis Suarez getting the winning goal in the second half.
With the win secured, the Leinster star was able to resume celebrations on a glorious championship ending.
"2-1 I am good to go," he posted on his Twitter account.
