Lachlan Murphy is a highly gifted young defender who has evolved as the first player drafted from Adelaide’s SANFL development squad. Murphy won the Dean Bailey Award as the club’s best and most dedicated development player in the 2017 season, and was selected in the Rookie Draft ahead of the 2018 season.
Murphy made his debut for the Adelaide Crows in Round 1 of the 2018 season where he kicked his first AFL goal. A courageous small defender, Murphy’s aggressive game style has seen him go forward and hit the scoreboard. He is proving to be a damaging player for the Crows, and one who looks to continuously be improving and developing.
