Murphy Recovering From Surgery
4th July 2011 By Munster Rugby
Munster and Ireland centre Barry Murphy (28) underwent surgery on his foot last week to correct a “Lisfrank” injury by fusing together two small bones in his foot.
The 28 year old whose seven year association with Munster Rugby came to end at the conclusion of last season had the operation in Dublin with his surgeon optimistic of a positive outcome.
“The surgeon seems to think there is a chance of a full recovery” reports Murphy, “After suffering long injured periods over the last two seasons, it is much too early to announce any chance of a comeback.”
“I have six to nine months of recovery and rehab to go through. I’ll quite literally take each step at a time and take stock of what I’m capable of at the end of that process.”
“I’d like to thank everyone who has been so supportive, especially medical staff, players and coaches at Munster – not forgetting the supporters too.”
Murphy is looking forward to staying involved by helping with coaching duties at UL Bohemians this coming season.
