Ireland assistant coach Richie Murphy has stated that Scrum-half Conor Murray is quite “lucky” enough to be fit to play against Italy after being hold by the boot of England’s Mike Brown. Murphy had to go under 8 stitches across his left eye after Mike tried to kick the ball from his hands during their match earlier on Saturday. England won that match.
Richie Murphy stated that Conor has got a split right next to his eye, he has had 8 stitches but he is grand. He did not train today, but they are only looking after him.
