Player Sponsor

The first player drafted from Adelaide’s SANFL development squad, Murphy earns an opportunity as a rookie. The skilful and courageous small defender played every game for the SANFL Crows and won the Dean Bailey Award as the Club’s best and most dedicated development player. He also finished fourth in Adelaide’s State League Club Champion count. Murphy played as an inside midfielder in the TAC Cup where he won the Northern Knights best and fairest award from just 10 games in 2016. Despite his stature, the courageous 18-year-old is strong overhead and tough to beat one-on-one.
