Mur­phy aims for fi­nals

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

CARL­TON cap­tain Marc Mur­phy ad­mits he thinks about play­ing in fi­nals be­fore his ca­reer ends as he weighs up his fu­ture.

Mur­phy, 30, is out of con­tract at the end of this year and is in ne­go­ti­a­tions with the Blues about a two-year ex­ten­sion.

Mur­phy, who hopes to re­turn next week af­ter miss­ing a month with a foot in­jury, said yes­ter­day he wants to stay at the Blues but play­ing fi­nals again was a mo­ti­vat­ing fac­tor.

“Ob­vi­ously, I want to play fi­nals footy and it’s some­thing I’m striv­ing for, but hope­fully I can do that at the Carl­ton footy club,” he said.

Mur­phy said he had thought about the legacy of play­ers like for­mer Rich­mond cap­tain Chris New­man, who set the Tigers on the path to suc­cess but re­tired be­fore they claimed the premier­ship.
