Born in Cumbria, Murdock started his professional career with Wigan in 1993 after being signed from amateur side Hensingham. He scored 23 tries in 68 appearances for the club, and took part in the Clash of the Codes match against Bath, scoring two tries in the match played under rugby union rules.
After his playing career ended, Murdock worked as a commentator for BBC Radio Humberside for almost a decade, but was forced to leave the role in 2014 due to a "conflict of interest" with his work as a player agent. He was subsequently employed by the Hull Daily Mail as a columnist.
