With typical resolve, the Carlton captain overcame a long injury lay-off through 2016 to string together all 22 senior appearances in season ’17 – one of seven players to have done so.That he led the Blues’ disposal, contested possession, score involvement and inside 50 counts speaks volumes for the manner in which Murphy overcame that substantial physical setback. Now a father, and truly comfortable in his own skin, ‘Murph’ can justifiably look forward to the season with genuine relish.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No.1 overall.
