Conor Murray relies on Father Ted logic as gym work outrageously questioned on Twitter
Makes sense

Damn internet. Spoiling lovely moments since 1990.

Nine tries, a bonus point and confidence restored, Saturday was a good day for Ireland in Rome.

It was a particularly nice day for the Munster contingent. A debut for Niall Scannell, a hat-trick and predictable man of the match award for CJ Stander, two more tries for Keith Earls and caps off the bench for Johnny Ryan and Ian Keatley.

So, the lads (minus CJ, who was probably getting interviewed) decided to mark the occasion with a photo on the Stadio Olympico pitch .

Ian Keatley posted the snap on Twitter and all was right with the world. Until a certain Mike Coade spotted something.


He noticed that hooker Scannell and utility back Keatley had legs that looked considerably more gym-honed than Earls and Murray.

Scrum-half Murray was not going to let this go and Tuesday responded with a classic piece of Father Ted logic.

It is the only logical explanation because we know Murray's gym routine is as arduous as anyone's.
