I am genuinely preplexed. People talk about Murray's defensive capabilities and two tackles today will be pointed out but Reddan is equally adept at making those tackles. I think Murray made a number of costly mistakes today that lost us momentum and that in a great period of attacking phases he was so brutally slow that it cost us any opportunities.
Murray also has no link play with Sexton. He doesn't even attempt to play in the backline. Also did anyone notice how Reddan marshalls the pack when he comes on? When Murray plays theres no such cohesion.
I find Murray very poor and very detrimental to the team. His defensive capabilities is exactly the same reason used for starting Tomas O'Leary.
So who would you start next week?
