    Bob Murphy says he'll make decision on another year at end of season

    Link

    Western Bulldogs skipper Bob Murphy says he and the club will wait until the end of season before having a discussion about him playing on in 2018.



    Murphy, who has played 301 games and returned this year from a serious knee injury, said in weighing up his future he'd talk to the club to gauge what its needs were.
    "It should be a collaboration, it won't be an, I want, they want," Murphy said on SEN Radio. "It will be a 'what do you think? Let's have a chat'.


    "Get through the winter and then see where the cards are."

    At the start of the year I thought this was absolutely his last year. Now, I'm like Bob, if at the end of the year he's still a very damaging player (which he is now) then perhaps he plays on. Although if he holds up the cup, I reckon he leaves on a high.

    No need to decide now. Bobby will know the right time to go.

    Yes, its a long season - a lot can transpire between now and the end of September.

    Based on the first 6 rounds - I'd like him to play on next year - he's certainly good enough. But he's got 16 more matches plus finals - for everyone to get the full picture.

    Great that he hasn't lost his pace, touch and his 'Bobby dazzle'.
    The Western Bulldogs.....shortest premiership drought in the league.

    The end comes quickly, but Bob will know the right decision to make.

    May he bow out after a stellar season, having held up the cup as playing captain.

    Just on the graphic, when was his big hair period??

    Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath

    And we all found heaven - 2016 Premiers!

    Right call. See how the body it. See how his form is. I hope he goes round again.

    Glad he's not closing the door right now on another year and instead will make a decision at the end of the year, when he's better positioned to make the right call.
