Tigers legend,but word has it he was mis-quoted and it's his contract that ends this year,so we offer him another and he is happy to carry on,body willing he said.A perfect candidate for a coach for the Tigers.
G'wan yerself Geordan! Been a fan of Leicester for a long time and I'm always impressed with your abilities... Good Luck!!
Great player and absolutely top guy! Good luck with the restaurant Geordan!
What a brilliant, mercurial talent. Went to my old school and watched him as a schoolboy, he was superb. Quick, great feet, incredible passer and unselfish all the attributes he went onto use later on. He was shamefully treated by Ireland and in particular Eddie O Sullivan, a conservative, who never trusted Geordies gifts. He never moaned, just kept his dignity, and Leicester's gain was our loss.
The last fixture Leicester play this season is versus London Irish. How appropriate. Geordan will surely receive a standing ovation. A brilliant player with immense talent and skill. One of those players, who alone, is worth paying the price of the ticket.
I miss watching him play for Ireland. He's a great player. Definitely one of the best to watch.
As a Saints fan, I'd just like to say how sad I am to read this news. Geordan is one of the most talented players ever to grace a rugby field and I always looked forward to and enjoyed watching him play. In his heyday, he was without question the best in the world. He's also a true gentleman - I very much hope he stays involved in East Midlands rugby in some capacity
great servant to Leicester and Ireland truly one of the greats and very loyal to his club
Absolute legend should have got more Irish caps but his loyalty to Leicester ment he didn't which is a shame but a great club career who knows he may be tempted by 1 more year!
An absolute legend of the game, must agree with many of the comments on here and as a Tigers fan am hoping he will get another season, if not maybe he will return as a coach as I'm sure he has plenty still to offer the game.No matter what good luck.
A superb full back who was very unlucky that he was about at a time when Ireland had a run of other very good full backs, although I always thought he never quite got the benefit of the doubt in some instances, perhaps because he played in England rather than Ireland.
Excellent fullback, superb on the counter attack. Nice guy as well, I remember having a beer with him in Leciester during my uni days. Tigers legend
Annoyingly good to watch.As a Gloucester and England fan I echo #4 RnB0804 in that you hoped he would be left out.Good luck for the season Mr. Murphy
An absolute role model, brilliantly loyal to the Tigers and whom should have had even more caps for Ireland. If the club has any sense they will hold on to him after he retires, either as a coach or a "representative".
Sorry to see this elegant throwback calling it a day. If he'd been playing before muscle rugby, his craft and guile would have put him on a par with David Duckham, Barry John, Phil Bennett and Serge Blanco.My memory of GM will not of his tries, but of fearing for his skinny limbs taking countless high balls in a mass of rampaging backrowers - only to emerge unscathed!
As a Bath and England fan, he was always a player you hope would be left out!Great player - Leicester have been lucky!
Let's hope his body survives this season in good shape and that we get a further season of his wonderful skills and commitment. If this is not to be, then all the best for the future, Geordan.
Always been an admirer of Geordan Murphy. If it it to be his last year of playing, then I wish him all the very best for the season.
A brilliant servant to the club, scorer of the best try I have ever seen - ruining on to an overhead kick at full speed, he managed to chip the ball, catch it and scored. So solid under the high ball and more than tackled his weight. I am glad we know now so that we can appreciate even more watching him play this season.Thanks Geordan.
