Ireland prop Jack McGrath has confirmed he will leave Leinster and join Ulster after the World Cup in order to improve his international prospects.
McGrath, who is contracted to the Irish Rugby Football Union, has won 57 caps but has slipped behind provincial colleague Cian Healy in the loosehead pecking order.
McGrath says it was a decision that was not taken lightly, but feels it is the best way forward as he looks to progress with his career. “This was a difficult decision but one I believe will put me in the best position to continue to perform at the top end of the game,” McGrath said.
