Same as that on Aaron Byrne, I expected to see him by now. He did pick up an injury in the Dubs Star game, but I don’t know where he is at now.
On Murchan- personally i think if he is used in the right way, he is good enough to overcome the height issue, but he needs to be played in a way where it’s not exploited by the opposition.
As @JJF says, Ryan McHugh is an example of a small guy who overcomes it, and I think some aspects of Murchans game is better then McHugh.
Then the other problem for Murchan is that he has to take someone’s place, and I have no idea what place, if any, is available in the backs.
I think against a defensive team he could do a good job breaking the defensive line, but so can McCaffery and John Small etc. But I would like to see Murchan make it just to prove the game isn’t all about size and brawn.
