Rugby World Cup: Scotland can cope without devout Christian Euan Murray on Sunday

Scotland coach Massi Cuttitta insists Euan Murray’s refusal to play on the Sabbath won’t dent their World Cup quest to reach the last 16.

The Scots need to beat Argentina a week tomorrow but the Lions prop will be missing from the crunch showdown in Wellington due to his religion.

However, Cuttitta is adamant it is nonsense to suggest the front-row is a one-man show.

Devout Christian Murray earned rave reviews for his powerful display in the win over Georgia on Wednesday.

Under normal circumstances, he would be one of the first names on Andy Robinson’s team list but Cuttitta claims the Scots’ front five will be every bit as potent without Murray.
