Munster’s Conor Murray looks set to start against Paris side Racing 92 when they visit Thomond Park for their European Champions Cup Round 6 clash on Saturday.
The scrum-half confirmed this afternoon that he didn’t lose consciousness after he sustained a blow to the neck during last weekends hard-fought encounter with Glasgow.
Speaking to reporters this afternoon, Murray also confirmed that he has seen a neurologist as part of head injury assessment procedures. He said all protocols were followed by Munster in dealing with the injury.
Murrary was speaking this afternoon at a press event organised ahead of Saturday’s fixture at a sold-out Thomond Park.
The Munster men have already qualified for the knock-out stages of the competition and are bidding for a home quarter-final fixture.
Also speaking at the media day, held in the High Performance unit at the University of Limerick, was Munster coach Rassie Erasmus.
Asked whether there was any fear that Munster would be complacent on Saturday knowing they have already booked their quarter-final spot, Erasmus said: “Complacency won’t be an issue.”
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that following a “bang to the ribs” in training yesterday, Keith Earls hasn’t trained today and is being monitored by the team’s medical department.
