Conor Murray named as Player’s Player of the Year

Conor Murray named Irish Player’s Player of the Year.

The Munster and Ireland scrum-half had a fantastic season and was a key player when Ireland bet the All Blacks for the first time last season beating them 40-29 in what was a historic occasion for Ireland.

His form for Munster has been consistently on top form this season, while he started four of Ireland’s Six Nations games this year before he suffered a shoulder injury that has kept him out of the game up to last weekend where he returned coming on from the bench for Munster in their 50-14 win over Connacht in The Pro12.

Speaking to media after his award presentation last night Murray said:

“It has been an incredible season and one that I have thoroughly enjoyed,”. “We have had our challenges and some sad days along the way, but to have both Munster and Ireland performing at the highest level has been very satisfying.

“Being recognised in this way by my peers is special. I just hope that I can continue to do my job in the important games that are to come.”
