I'd be doubtful his weight is accurate based on what i've seen of him. Wouldn't be the first case of stat inflation.hugonaut wrote: ↑June 16th, 2021, 6:12 pm Darragh Murray, listed at 201cm/115kg, is Niall Murray's younger brother [source: https://www.westmeathindependent.ie/202 ... emy-squad/ ].
I was impressed with NM's performances for Connacht this season, particularly the last part of the season. If his brother is a similar player, he's got the size to really make an impact at this tournament and hopefully further down the line as a pro.
201cm/115kg is really big for an Irish U20 lock ... we've had taller, but not very many who combined height and weight. The only second row I can think of at that size was John Madigan of Dolphin, and he never actually played for the U20s in a tournament. Danny Qualter was also a big lump as an U20, but he didn't make the 2m mark.
EDIT: Absolutely sh*t haircut though.
he's been injured recently and didn't play in the warm ups so will be interesting to see how he goes.
