University of Brighton student Joe Murray (pictured on the left) was honoured to receive his first international cap for Jamaica’s U23’s rugby team last weekend. Joe who studies Sport and Exercise Science was selected to play for Jamaica in the away fixture against Gibraltar U23. Jamaica defeated Gibraltar in a thriller, winning 17-15 at Europa Point on Saturday afternoon. Highlights from the official @Jamaica_Rugby Twitter page during the team's recent trip are below.

 Jamaica’s Team Manager Hughton Campbell said ‘Joe is a really exciting young player with great handling, skills best performed under pressure.

We can expect to see Joe graduating to the senior 7’s team in the not to distant future.’

Joe clearly likes to keep busy as he also represents the University of Brighton Panthers Rugby team competing in the BUCS Premier League. He also volunteers for the performance programme with Sport Brighton as well as the Jamaica team utilising his academic specialism in strength and conditioning.

We look forward to seeing what is next for Joe.
