The Many Hair Stages Of Munster Scrum Half Conor Murray..

On Saturday November 8th 2014 the Irish rugby team beat South Africa in the Aviva stadium. It was one of the most exciting matches I've ever watched as the likelihood of Ireland winning was very slim. They did in fact win and with Conor Murray setting up a try for Tommy Bowe I was extremely proud. The very next day whilst I was squandering down my facebook I saw a article about how Conor Murray is the best scrum half in the world http://www.punditarena.com/rugby/bbarry/conor-murray-worlds-best-scrum-half/
This then in turn got me thinking about how I saw this three years ago when Murray was only starting off with Munster and Ireland and ehm would anyone listen?  NO!! Why? Well am maybe it was because I hadn't a clue what was going on, but none the less I knew it!!
I remembered the first time I saw Conor play a rugby match, and how I thought he was useless, I mean WHY was the man standing at the side of the scrum afraid to get involved (yeah I know but at the time I didn't know what a 'scrum half' was) but I wasn't slow releasing and  within a month of watching matches I knew Conor had something special, and ehm..... he sure does. I then read my blog on the first time I met the Limerick native  (you can read it here->  http://littlepieceoflynda.blogspot.ie/2013/11/5th-may-2012.html ) and something hit me... Conor has drastically changed throughout the years!! And I'm not talking about his skill, or personality.. It's the hair!!

I then watched an episode of Father Ted where they did the three stages of Elvis so that's what I'm going to do to Conor now.
Conor Murray's hair has changed drastically over the years and I'm going to take you through it ...So fair warning if you don't want to drool over a rugby player you may want to look away now!!

The many hair stages of Conor Murray...

Back when I first discovered Murray and he had just started playing for Munster his hair looked like...
I was mesmerised, and okay looking back now maybe it was slightly too long but I loved it!!
After this the next time I saw Murray was during Ireland training ahead of the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, and my fave hair stage...
(Note this was when the ehm, 'obsession' kicked in)

 The next stage was when Conor actually headed to New Zealand for the RWC..

 On the tour Murray's nickname became 'Bieber' for obvious reasons, and I actually really liked the hair. Murray wasn't even the starting scrum half going to New Zealand, however after his outstanding performances he flew home with the title of Ireland's best scrum half and from there he's just got better and better.
As Murray's hair grew so did my obsession and when the RWC was done that was all I needed to know as I set about making my task of meeting Conor Murray a success.
First time I met Conor his hair was still long, not as long as seen above but still long, and was for the first 6/7 times I met him until suddenly I copped it.. and the locks got shorter and shorter..

From there Conor got chosen to represent Ireland on the 2013 Lions tour (How unreal is that for a 24 year old) but to my despair the hair got even shorter!!
Conor was starting scrum half for most of the tour and did his country and his Provence proud and when the new season at Munster started he was back in full swing and the hair was even shorter...

Today, Murray is still rocking the short hair and personally I really don't care I just fancied doing a bit of creeping of Murray on a horrible wet dreary Tuesday night.. hahahaha
Hope you enjoyed ..
Ps. Conor Murray currently looks like this..
Yeah I know.. Sighhh
