Robert Murphy is an elite rebounding defender with silky skills and a big heart for the Western Bulldogs football club. The 2011 All Australian was drafted as the Bulldogs first round selection in the 1999 AFL National Draft (pick 13 overall) with his talent identified early, winning the Western Bulldogs Most Promising Player Award in 2001. It's hard to find a better user of the ball than Murphy, and his poise and agility has not waned in 14 ultra consistent years at the Club. 

Robert is also a regular columnist and writer, with his first book, Murphy’s Lore: Tales from the West, published in March 2015 (Penguin).
