David Humphreys began his professional rugby career with London Irish but returned to Ulster with the advent of professionalism in the province at the beginning of the 1998-99 season and captained Ulster to European Cup glory in 1999.

A qualified solicitor, Humphreys was educated at Ballymena Academy, Queens University Belfast and Oxford University. He received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Ulster in December 2003 for Services to Sport and an MBE in the Queens New Year’s Honours List in January 2004, making his full title, Dr David Humphreys MBE.
 
In September 2004 (v Connacht), he became only the 4th Ulster player to reach the 100 cap mark, joining Gary Longwell, James Topping and Andy Ward in reaching that milestone.
One of Irish Rugby’s most prolific figures, David is Ireland’s most capped out-half with 72 appearances and has scored 560 international points. He made his Ireland debut in 1996 and was ever present in the Ireland squad until he announced his retirement from the international game after the 2006 Six Nations campaign.

David has made an outstanding contribution to Irish Rugby, as well as notching up an impressive tally of international caps, Humphreys has represented Ireland at A, U21 and Schools Levels and has also been capped for the Barbarians.

He continues to be amongst the most impressive fly-halves in world, ending the 2006/07 season with the most points scored for Ulster - an impressive 200 points with 20 caps in just one season. His following is as strong as ever with many loyal supporters calling for him to return to competing at International level.
