Young Collingwood dasher Sam Murray will make his AFL Anzac Day debut after being cleared of an incident in Friday night's win over Adelaide.

Murray made high contact with Crows forward Mitch McGovern in the third quarter at Adelaide Oval.

Match reviewer Michael Christian ruled the two players, coming from opposite directions, were going for the ball and Murray had braced himself for contact.

Murray has impressed since making his AFL debut in round one and will be part of the Magpies' defence in the April 25 clash with Essendon.

Crows captain Taylor Walker faces a $2000 fine for striking Collingwood midfielder Adam Treloar, while Adelaide's Darcy Fogarty escaped sanction for his contact with Collingwood's Ben Crocker.

Comment: Anzac Day clash is a great AFL tradition, but it should not just be Collingwood and Essendon .
The AFL has walked such a fine line on social issues that, sometimes, it is difficult to tell whether it is a good corporate citizen or an opportunistic cause merchant. As Fairfax Media reported on the weekend, two new documentaries about the disgraceful treatment of Adam Goodes will remind us how the AFL failed to live up to its rhetoric on Indigenous affairs because it did not want to upset the supporters who racially vilified the Sydney Swans champion.
