In June 2015, it was announced that Murray had signed a two-year contract with Pau in France.

International

In 1998 he played for Scotland under-18, and the following year he enjoyed a victory against England in the IRB Junior World Championship match at Pontypridd, Wales. Subsequently, between 1999 and 2001, he was capped 13 times in under-21 internationals.

His senior Scotland career began with his debut against Romania in Bucharest in 2005.

He was a part of their 2007 Six Nations squad, and scored a try in their final game against France. Murray was picked for the Lions tour to South Africa in 2009. He was one of only 2 Scottish players originally selected, the other being Nathan Hines. Scotland captain Mike Blair and fellow front rower Ross Ford were later called up as replacements.

Murray retired from international rugby in May 2015, 4 months prior to the RWC, citing the close timing of the tournament with his wife expecting their third child. He amassed 66 caps for Scotland, and retired as Scotlands' most capped tighthead prop. Murray also was on the Lions tour to South Africa in 2009, but missed out on test selection due to injury suffered in the warm up matches.

Personal life

In 2009, he announced he would no longer be playing on Sundays, out of his commitment to the Christian Sabbath, prompting comparisons to Eric Liddell.

Murray is a qualified vet.
