Player Bio

At a Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -
Previous AFL Club: Hawthorn (2005-12: 95 games, 5 goals).
Draft History: 2004 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 21 overall; 2012 unrestricted free agent (Gold Coast).  

Recruited from Hawthorn and did a nice job marshalling the backline in his first year in 2013.

With fellow elder statesmen Nathan Bock and Matthew Warnock injured for much of the year, Murphy took on a leadership role and steered the inexperienced back six well in his 17 games.

Murphy can play on tall or small forwards and do a good job.
