Murphy eyes sensational final comeback

GEORDAN MURPHY is not ruling out a sensational return to fitness -- and a Heineken Cup final could offer the perfect stage for his comeback.

"Fingers crossed that I will be back before the end of the season," said Leicester's Irish full-back. "I've an operation on April 12 to take the pins, screws and wires out of my foot then it's all about how quickly I can recover. If I'm jogging in April then I'll have the opportunity to train with the rest of the squad.

"And if I'm sprinting by mid-May then hopefully I could make the end of the season."
