Sensational!
He had a great game, and his upside is huge. Just imagine him in 4 years time if he keeps this trajectory!
Mate if he kept up this trajectory, in four years he’d be some combination of shaun burgoyne and jesus.

In all seriousness, I haven’t seen a bloke just own his spot from his first game quite as well as he has.i really felt last year that his unique talents really forced changes to our game plan / style of play.

Just before my time. I was thinking of a two wingmen combination, hence Trigger and Hutts came to mind from ‘89 and ‘90.
They were very good.

I remember Light and Nyland, Light and Kinnear, and Abernethy and Kinnear with much fondness.

Duursma is a huge talent. Runs relentlessly supporting forward and back, great size for a mid, can take a big grab and really nailed his set shots last night.

Xavier last year finished top 10 in the club B&F - 8th. Rozee got the headlines and finished 4th. Wouldn't be surprised if both finish top 5 this year.

Duurs had a lot of X-factor Saturday night, I daresay if he can keep that up through the year there's no reason why he won't be equal with Rozee considering his other attributes that are better than Connor's.
