Murray to start for Munster in Toulouse clash

Despite not being able to train fully this week, Conor Murray has been given the nod to start against Top 14 side Toulouse.

Conor Murray has been passed fit to make his return from injury in Munster's European Champions Cup quarter-final against Toulouse on Saturday.

The fly-half has been out of action since damaging his shoulder during Ireland's 22-9 Six Nations defeat to Wales in Cardiff, but will start at Thomond Park.

Murray has not trained fully this week, but Rassie Erasmus named him in his starting line-up on the eve of the last-eight encounter.

The inspirational playmaker will line up alongside Ireland team-mates Donnacha Ryan, CJ Stander, Keith Earls and Simon Zebo, who will feature for the first time since the Six Nations.

Centre Francis Saili also returns ahead of schedule, with the centre named among the replacements after recovering from a knee ligament injury.
