Murray anticipates improvement
08 Feb 2016 18:06
Conor Murray believes injury-hit Ireland have reasserted their RBS 6 Nations title credentials by drawing with Wales.
-
The scrum-half claimed Ireland's only try as Johnny Sexton's late penalty clinched a 16-16 draw in Dublin on Sunday.

Ireland will next face France in Paris, with Murray insisting Joe Schmidt's side can still fight for an unprecedented third consecutive Six Nations crown.
-
Ireland's catalogue of injuries stretched to 10 frontline stars for the Wales clash, but the draw left Murray suggesting various gloomy forecasts were misplaced.
-
"The feeling outside the group has been a bit downcast, with players missing," said Murray.
-
"That does filter into the camp, whether you stay away from the media or whatever, because your family will read and listen to everything.
-
"We're a confident group. Yes, there's a few changes and people missing, but the lads that have stepped up have been in camp and have been here before.
-
"They know what to expect of Joe and really, they've gone out and proved that they can play well within the system.
-
"A new group will always be different, and you'll always wonder how you'll go slightly, no matter how experienced you are.
-
"But I thought we did quite well there, played well, the lads who haven't been in the team performed well. And we'll look to build on that for next week."
