Profile

It may have taken longer than he or anyone else expected, but when Jacob Murphy became the 123rd player to debut for the Camberwell Magpies First XI in Round 7 against Geelong last season, he wasted no time in making his presence felt.

After years of consistent performances in the club’s lower grades and a brilliant start to the 2015/16 season in the 2nd XI, the Carey Grammar product had an immediate impact at first grade level, scoring 309 runs at 30.09 from his first 13 games.

A member of the club’s five-man leadership group since last season, the 23-year-old left-hander possesses an extremely tidy technique that is equally adept at playing both pace and spin. Jacob has also established himself as one of the best all-round fielders at the club, and is a constant driver amongst the playing group of the club’s trademarks and standards.
