Love Zurhaar. Has been a livewire from his first game, plays with so much energy and aggression.

Someone mentioned in the matchday thread how there was a point he was mowing through opponents like a bowling ball. Watching the replay last night he did exactly that.

Sometimes despite all the attributes some players just don't ever seem to produce scores and others do. Cameron just seems to naturally find the goals.

Makes things happen. Might not kick the goal himself but he influences the contest so much that it leads to opportunities for others

Although he nearly ran too far for that goal in the last quarter. I reckon another couple of steps and we could have been pulling our hair out...

Zurhaar is the only genuine “mongrel” in our team. He’s a borderline dirty player. While I don’t necessarily like that sort of thing, it’s undeniable that every successful team needs one. He lays waste opposition players - “accidentally “. The sight of Crouch leaving the ground was very much part of our surge in the third quarter. While it looked like an accident, opposition players are always in danger of getting hurt when Cam is around. Jed, obviously, is a beast. However, he plays very fairly. Zurhaar, on the other hand, is always pushing the line of fair play. Witness the cocked elbow after he scored his goal. Remember the “push” against the Hawks last season that sent the player into the Etihad fence? This guy ensures that the opposition players are constantly wary. We need that in our team.

Lol. Of course, I forgot Cunnington - the Pitbull of mongrels!

Like JZ and KT, he doesn't trust his kicking for goal at the moment and obviously decided he will run almost to the goal square to make it a certainty. Would have run 20 metres, and thankfully got a bit of leeway there.

Cam stays in for mine, has a habit of bobbing up for a goal when a goal is sorely needed.
A classy goal yesterday. Better than the #1 ruckman. Cam should be playing every week. With him and Cunners and Jed at least we have some guys to go hard full time.

Should get the number 11 when he moves to the senior list.

And should definitely play this week.
Might also qualify for Pikeys' #13 Same height and almost same weight as Pikey as well. A little bit of Gary Cowton too :-D
