New Magpie Nathan Murphy turned his back on his cricket World Cup dream to pursue his AFL dream.

"At the start of the year I was planning to make the under-19 cricket World Cup team next year so so much can change in a year," the 17-year-old said.

"I've always been in love with both sports but a future in footy excites me more than a future in cricket.

"To land at a club like Collingwood so that I can stay home with the family, it's the best possible outcome."

"It was always going to be footy but I just had to get myself in good enough form first, as well as the right mentality to make a call on it."
