Conor Murray Hits Out At Munster Boo-Boys In Interview

Conor Murray Hits Out At Munster Boo-Boys In Interview
By Conor Neville Updated

The ironic cheering that greeted the substitution of fly-half Ian Keatley is one of the bigger stories to emerge from Munster's loss to Leicester at the weekend.

On Off the Ball, Trevor Hogan ripped into those Munster fans who jeered their fly-half, labelling them a 'pathetic' and a 'disgrace'.

Anthony Foley, who previously lamented the unusually low attendances in Thomond Park at the start of the season, described the crowd reaction as 'disappointing', while the club published a statement on their website talking urging supporters to show 'R.E.S.P.E.C.T', turning the word into an acronym in the fashion of Aretha Franklin.

Conor Murray is the latest to voice his disappointment over the behaviour of the fans in an interview on RTE.

When you do hear that kind of stuff happening it is very disappointing.

It’s something serious; that’s not support in my view.

No player goes out there or no squad goes out there and tries to play poorly or tries to make mistakes, it’s absolutely not like that.

99% of the time it’s unbelievable support. It’s just a little bit disappointing and it was only probably a small percentage of people but you don’t go out and try and play poorly and try and make mistakes.

When a team is playing poorly or things aren’t going well it can be frustrating for us as players on the pitch at times but it’s certainly not intentional.

I think it’s disappointing at times from those tiny, tiny section of people.

For all the disenchantment currently surrounding the club, Murray provided some good cheer by confirming that he is eager to renew his contract with the province.
