Murray feud lingers

Continued from back page

"It is the past. It will be incredibly intense, incredibly combative but I certainly don't anticipate anything like that happening."

Cotter, however, disagreed with Murray's assertion that Glasgow's actions were premeditated.

"There was a discussion afterwards and some of it went to the press," he said. "I've talked to the coaches and the players and it was not a deliberate tactic to injure Conor Murray. He is a key member of the team, as any half-back or decision-maker is, so there was pressure applied on him at certain parts of the game.

"It was unfortunate what came out in the press. There will be pressure applied on players, but all done within the laws of the game."
