Not IMO.

He ran a great hard line.

Big handoff, and then ran another clever line to set up good ball to be recycled.

Then he got the ball at the 12 position from the next Ruck, with penalty advantage, and threw a great looping pass over the defence to O'Dea.

I don't know, it was only one incident, but with Hurley's intelligence, and offloading ability, he could do a good job at 13 if needed.

Just on LO'D, notice how he got done on the outside for the Dragons try. Good prospect but like Zebo, still plenty to work on.

Sure that wasn't Deasy?

I'm pretty sure it was Deasy who threw the huge pass. None the less, Hurley still had a great few minutes.

You may be right.

Thought it was 23 who threw it but maybe it was 22.

Sorry if incorrect.

EDIT: Definitly Deasy. Watched back.

According to the above he suffered a dislocated shoulder so out for a while anyway.

Apparently Murrays injury isnt as bad as initially feared.

Bad news for Foley but it won't affect Munster at all, we have more than enough depth at lock.

Maybe Nagle will get a game?

I know that but I hate to see a player go down injured and he really looked in bother at the final whistle, also I hate to see a young player losing out through injury.

Hurley strikes as much more like a Downey-style 12.

Downey-style with beautiful hands. I don't want to exaggerate too but Hurley's offloading ability in the tackle is one of the best in the Heineken Cup imo.
