BIOGRAPHY

Mick was a Trojan prop forward who played almost 100 matches for the Saints between September 1972 and February 1975. He was a PE teacher in further education when he signed from Barrow. Always strong in the contact area he possessed a neat offload. Mick scored just four tries for the Saints, half of these touchdowns came in the game against Oldham on the 31st of March, 1974. In his last season he helped the Saints to become Champions before leaving shortly before the end of the season. Mick died in March 2019 aged 77.Murphy had a distinguished playing career with clubs in England, Australia and France.Starting his career in rugby union with Waterloo, he turned professional with Leigh in 1963. He then moved to Barrow in 1969 and St Helens in 1972, who he helped with the league championship in the 1974-75 season. During that time he represented Lancashire twice.Switching to Bradford Northern for two seasons from 1975, he then moved abroad and spent much of the 1977 Australian season with New South Wales side Wagga Wagga. On his return to Europe, he spent time in France with Tonneins XIII and St Jacques XIII.He then turned to club management and was part of a three-man consortium who rescued Huddersfield in 1988 when the club was heading for liquidation. He persuaded Alex Murphy to become coach, which led to a revival in the club’s fortunes.
