A rising star nominee in April, Duursma has also caught the eye for his bow and arrow celebration after kicking goals — something that formed a 19th birthday present from Martin Frederick in Port’s SANFL game on Sunday.
“It was my birthday on Sunday and he (Frederick) messaged me for my birthday and said I will do your celebration when I kick a goal and he kicked one of the best goals I have seen in a long time and did my celebration,” Duursma said. “It was very nice.
The bow and arrow celebration isn’t the only thing that sets Duursma apart from other AFL players, in addition to his strong dance background the gun rookie has a massive love for all things Star Wars. “I am a massive fan, that is a big passion of mine,” he said. “I have a massive collection of Star Wars stuff and half of it is still in Victoria.”
Wasn't paying absolute attention whilst driving out of a busy car park in the rain but I think I heard Jarrad Schofield say on 5AA about who was out "of course Duursma" being omitted, something about being managed after a knock in the showdown. Later on 5AA there was talk about a corky. Will have to re-listen on the podcast.I simply do not understand his being ommitted....is he being rested?
