EPCR review happy with Murray treatment

Date published: January 21 2017

The EPCR Untoward Incident Review Group has met on several occasions to discuss the Conor Murray incident in the Champions Cup match between Glasgow Warriors and Munster.

The Group, whilst acknowledging its role is to review the application of the World Rugby Head Injury Assessment protocol, has player welfare at its core.

The opinion of the Group is that Murray did not demonstrate any criteria that should have led to his immediate and permanent removal from the field of play.

The player underwent further assessment by Munster’s medical team and its specialist advisors and, as such, the decision as to when the player returns to play rests with Munster.

The Group will deliver its full report in due course.
