This is a must watch.
Ireland scrumhalf Conor Murray recently sat down with Keith Wood in a fantastic interview that will broadcast before today’s game with Scotland.
In the powerful sit-down, the Munster nine speaks about being a reluctant leader and how he’s try to make a conscious effort to enjoy his rugby and the experiences a little more.
Murray speaks candidly about the passing of Anthony Foley and the special tribute Ireland payed to him before their now famous win over the mighty All Blacks in Chicago.
The week felt a bit weird. From coming from Munster and then Axel passing and then to jump into another camp and kind of have that in your head, it felt a little bit weird.
From the beginning of the game, from the national anthems to the Haka with the eight. Just the emotion that built up in that game. You realise that when you’re standing in the figure-of-eight, the crowd realised what it was. There was a roar when the Haka was going on. It just felt like a really powerful thing to do. The images are spine-tingling.
Murray says that he feels that was his best performance in green, and it’s hard not to agree with him.
To put in a performance like that was the best sporting moment of my life. Sometimes you try and be a bit humble about it but that was my best performance in a green shirt.
