What The Internet 'Experts' Say About Conor Murray's Suspected Medial Ligament Injury
By Conor O'Leary Updated

Munster may have come out of a roller-coaster Pro 12 semi final with the Ospreys in Thomond Park on the positive side, but not all of their day was positive. A disallowed try with the final play of the game sees Munster travel to Belfast to face Glasgow in the final of the competition.

But they will most likely have to do it without Ireland scrumhalf Conor Murray:

We won't know more until Murray is taken for a scan either tomorrow or on Monday, but it's worrying times for Munster and Ireland especially with the World Cup coming up. With Murray becoming one of Ireland's most important players and one of the best scrumhalves in the world, he would be a huge loss.

If it is a suspected medial ligament injury though, it could be ok. According to WebMD, even allowing for the worst case scenario with a severe medial ligament injury, Murray should be back in time for Ireland's World Cup warm up games in August:

  • Moderate or grade 2 injuries usually get better in about a month. You may need to wear a hinged knee brace and limit how much weight you put on your leg.
  • Severe or grade 3 injuries may require wearing a hinged brace for a few months, and limiting weight on the leg for 4 to 6 weeks.
