Munster Defend Their Treatment Of Conor Murray


Munster Rugby have defended their treatment of scrumhalf Conor Murray.

The southern province have stressed that they followed all the right protocols in treating Murray’s head injury, despite the EPCR calling for a full review of the incident.

Murray clashed heads with Glasgow’s Tim Swinson in their Champions Cup match last weekend and left the field to undergo an assessment of the injury.


Murray passed the assessment and Munster communications manager Fiona Murphy told the Irish Examiner he also completed the HIA 2 and 3 after the game, but the EPCR have asked its medical advisory group to convene an untoward incident review to investigate the timeline of events.

“We’re working with EPCR and anything to do with player welfare is welcome from our point of view,” Murphy said.

“We’ll work with EPCR on anything like that. Everything we did (in treating Murray) was in keeping with World Rugby guidelines in terms of timings and the medical processes, as it has been with every head injury.”

Do you think an EPCR investigation is neccessary or are Munster being unfairly treated?
