Watch: Conor Murray Speaks Out About His Suspected Concussion Incident


Conor Murray and Munster have been making headlines in recent days over the province’s treatment of the nine regarding a suspected concussion.

The mercurial nine was targeted on a number of occasions by Glasgow in Munster’s win this past weekend, with Murray appearing lose consciousness in the game, before being forced off for a head injury assessment.

Murray appeared to be knocked unconscious, or at the very least momentarily stunned, leading to the EPCR launching an investigation into the incident. Munster have since disputed the claims, stating he passed a HIA, and all protocols were followed.

The scrumhalf was quizzed on the incident today by Ross Lindsay of Today FM, and made it clear he wasn’t concussed and would never take the risk of playing this weekend if he was.

“If I feel I have a concussion, I would not play at the weekend. I think it is too dangerous.

“We are quite well educated on concussion – the way we approach it and the way higher powers are improving ways to deal with it is brilliant. It’s relative; the HIA only came in in 2012 I think. we’re always trying to improve it.

“If I felt I had a concussion or I felt off in any way, I wouldn’t play.”

Murray is expected to be included in Munster’s matchday squad for this weekend’s crucial clash with Racing 92. Munster need a win to guarantee a home quarter final.
