Watch: Conor Murray Makes Remarkable Run To Set Up CJ Stander Try Vs Leicester

The Limerick man played a blinder during Munster’s crucial away win over Leicester Tigers.

The Champions Cup pool three tie between the two teams saw Munster prevail, thanks in no small part to Conor Murray.

With the game delicately poised at 12-10 to Munster following an intense first half, the Irish province started the second 45 minutes on the right foot.

Munster kicked for a 22 and won the subsequent lineout. Murray marauded his way past three Leicester players en route to the tryline.

Though he was brought ashore just short of it, Murray was able to offload, with the in-form CJ Stander confirming the five points after his try was referred to the TMO.

Ian Keatley’s conversion made it 19-10, though Leicester, still bottom of pool three, reduced that deficit to three points. That would be the last resistance that the Tigers offered however, as two further penalties from Keatley ensured a 25-16 win for Johann van Graan’s side.
