This collision with Joe Marler was Conor Murray's 3rd concussion in 12 months

Worryingly Murray seemed to be knocked out despite no obviously huge contact. 

With Joe Schmidt taking just two scrumhalves to the RWC, Irish fans will not have enjoyed the sight of Conor Murray leaving the field concussed - for the third time within a 12 month period. 

Murrary was concussed in a match against Zebre and also against Australia in the 2014 Autumn Internationals.  

According to the IRFU he is following the 'Return to Play' protocol and is being monitored accordingly.

He's shipped other big hits in his time
