Matthew Lloyd fears Sam Murray may have played his last AFL game

Murray is under investigation by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) after allegedly tested positive for an illicit drug on match day.

He is facing a ban of two years or more.

The Magpies retained Lachie Keeffe and Josh Thomas on their list for two years during their ASADA-imposed suspension.

But Lloydy told 3AW Football the Pies’ hand may be forced this time around after defenders Lynden Dunn and Matt Scharenberg both suffered long-term injuries late in 2018.

“You can’t have three players on the list next year that don’t play,” Lloydy said.

“It might be the last time we’ve seen Sam Murray ever play a game of AFL football, unfortunately.”

Murray’s B sample is still to be assessed before any decision is made on his future.

The Magpie has sought independent legal advice.
