In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
O'Connell appeared to come through unscathed but had twisted his knee in the course of the game and it transpired he's suffered medial collateral ligament damage and will be out for 3/6 weeks.
Should both predictions prove correct and working off a worst case scenario, 4 weeks and 6 weeks respectively, Murray has a chance to be back in time for the Heineken cup quarter final against Ulster but O'Connell would have to be considered a doubt.
Tomas O'Leary will travel to Carton House to join up with the national squad in place of his Munster colleague.
