Conor Murray Receives Huge Plaudits After Ridiculously Opportunistic Try

Conor Murray displayed huge intelligence to get Munster off the mark against Toulon.

Munster, facing Toulon in the quarter-final of the European Champions Cup, were up against it today in Thomond Park. The home side were second best in the opening exchanges, as Toulon powered into a 6-0 lead, and spent the majority of the game inside the opposition half.

After Simon Zebo was forced off injured in what could be his final European game in Limerick, there was a sense around the famous ground that things were getting away from them.

However, a truly remarkable try ensued – one for the officiating purists.

With Toulon pinned back on their own line, but in possession at the breakdown, Conor Murray spotted that there was a knock-on at the base of the ruck. The Ireland and Lions scrum-half showed huge intelligence to act quickly, running around the ruck to touch down.

After about 10 minutes of the officials deliberating, the try was awarded, and Murray came in for plaudits.
