After missing out on being selected in 2021 as a top-ager, Toby Murray returned to his namesake side the Murray Bushrangers, and pieced together an impressive over-age season. Though not completely consistent throughout games, Murray proved himself to be a dangerous forward, using his 200cm frame - and increased size - to control the airways and hit the scoreboard on many occasions.

Murray's strength is what makes him a difficult player to matchup on, standing at 200cm but still 94kg, growing in size across the year, and being that far more influential ruck/forward. In 2022, Murray upped his disposal count, marks and hitouts, while slotting 16 goals from 12 games, up from seven in nine last season. His aerial presence helped him have plenty of opportunities, including a five-goal haul against the Stingrays in Round 12.

For Murray, he still needs to improve his overall consistency, particularly from game-to-game, but also four-quarter consistency. He kicked goals in eight of his 12 games, but also had some quiet outings where his influence was limited when he did not hit the scoreboard. If he can iron out his finishing - though he kicked 16.9, he had a number of chances that fell short - then Murray could be a good long-term developmental option for an AFL club.
