If he stays in the side he will only get better. I think he showed glimpses yesterday. Turned over the footy a couple of times, but hey so did our senior players. I hope Bucks sticks with him for a good 4-5 week block and see how he goes.
I thought he was one of the positives, I see him as part of our future makeup.

I’ve seen a little bit of Murphy in the VFL when he’s played, since he’s missed so much football. Certain players actually play better in the higher standard AFL code and Murphy strikes me as one of those. He’s a natural half back flanker who can play on big or small and the thinking should be just play him all the time in the senior side. In fact I can’t work out why Murphy couldn’t get a game last year when you see someone like Madgen out there deemed ahead of him.

Not at all. He showed more attack in this one game than Mayne has in his Collingwood career
Mayne has been solid after reinventing himself, great Clubman and can’t question his attack on the ball, guy puts himself on the line every week.

Murphy needs games in him, not sure if Mayne will be on the list next year but can’t question his effort.

Never question Mayne's effort. Just hate his skillset with ball in hand, and think the game has totally gone past him. With how bad we now are we have no space to carry someone who does no damage by foot.
