Scott Murray ‘sacked’ by Edinburgh

Scottish rugby’s decent into chaos has quickened pace with reports that Scotland star Scott Murray has been sacked by Edinburgh over a salary dispute.

Murray, capped 83 times by his country, recently announced that he was to join Montauban of France after the forthcoming Rugby World Cup, but The Herald claims that the lock has been “axed with immediate effect by Edinburgh”.

The newspaper alleges that the club has dispense of Murray on the basis that he was “in breach of contract for speaking to the press” about his imminent move to France.

“Scott is effectively being left without a salary for four months, which is why the matter has been placed in the hands of his lawyers,” said the newspaper’s “source”.

“It is very disappointing, but this has been bubbling under the surface for the last couple of weeks.”

The drama is the latest to unfold at Edinburgh in the past few months. The club and the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) are currently locked in a fight over an alleged shortfall in payments to the club.
