It would seem Irish rugby have adopted Munster's tactic of lifting scrumhalf Conor Murray in the line-out.
During today's Six Nations clash between Ireland and Italy, Murray joined and then jumped at the front of the lineout, as Jack Conan covered great ground to get the lift from the back.
Unfortunately, the move fell apart as the ball wasn't secured but the play of using Murray, who is 6'2, as a jumper is a creative move which may be deployed again as the tournament goes on. It is a move Munster have used in the past with great success.
Ireland has had limited lineout options in the past so the addition of new lifters and jumpers will give an invaluable edge against the more competitive opposition. As for the game itself, it was a decent chance to try the move as Italy have not posed too much opposition, conceding four tries in the first half.
