BBC Sport - Ireland's CJ Stander says Conor Murray won't need special protection against Scotland

Murray can look after himself says Stander

Ireland flanker CJ Stander says scrum-half Conor Murray will not need special protection in Saturday's Six Nations opener against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Murray accused Glasgow of targeting him in Munster's recent European game and Scotland skipper Greig Laidlaw has promised more of the same on Saturday.

"We know what we have to do. Make the ball available for him. He's a big man. Conor can look after himself," said Stander.
