Watch: Conor Murray Rewarded For Quick Thinking With Cheeky Try
By Gary Connaughton

On his day, Conor Murray is probably the best scrum half in world rugby. He has very few weaknesses to his game, with his ability to set the pace of a match is unmatched. While the Munster man has not been at his best over the past few months as he recovers from a long-term injury layoff, moments such as this one show he is well on his way to getting back to the top of his game.

Munster hosted the Cardiff Blues in Irish Independent Park in Cork tonight, hoping to continue their strong recent run of form. While Cardiff put up a decent challenge early on, the home side would ultimately prove too strong.

One of the key moments in the game arrived just after the hour mark, and it was Murray that would make the telling contribution.

With Munster going through the phases on the opposition line, the Ireland man showed incredible quick thinking to get his hands on the ball in the ruck, touching it down before the Cardiff defence even noticed what had happened. After going upstairs to check that the ball was indeed touched down, the try was awarded.

This would prove to be a key event in the game, with Munster ultimately running out comfortable winners.

While Murray may not have been at his best during the recent Guinness Six Nations, the signs are there that he is rediscovering his form. Moments such as this one only drive that point home.
