Jordi’s supportive girlfriend, model Laura Finnegan, is expected to be cheering on in support from the crowd.

“Laura will be attending with her mum on Sunday, she usually brings a friend but this time she wanted to bring her mum who’s a big rugby fan, especially as it’s an important day for Jordi,” a source revealed to Independent Style.

Jordi and Laura (both 23) have been on and off since they were 16 years old, having met through mutual friends in their native Monkstown. The couple split briefly before reuniting last year and are more loved-up than ever.

The couple both study at University College Dublin, where Laura is working towards a chemical engineering degree and Jordi is studying business.
