His 2021 was ruined in round 4 by Shane Edwards, was a gruesome injury. Got back late but was never right.What are Duursma's BnF results for the last 3 years?
Future 2nd + BZT is crazy talk even for Port.
2022 he came back bulked up (had a lot of recovery time in the gym I guess) and didn't really get going. Looked like he still wasn't confident in his body and was definitely a big disappointment, but he did finish the year well.
2023 he finally looked fully fit, started the season really well and then did his PCL in round 7. Was rushed back at the end of the season to help Hinkley get his contract and was a lame duck.
Think he is the kind of guy that needs everything in good working order to perform with confidence. A bit like old mate Orazio but unlike Orazio he still fronts up even if not 100%.
I'm really hoping that we end up keeping him as whenever he has got a proper crack at it the skillset he showed early on has still been there. But if the offer from Essendon is tempting enough then can see the merit in moving him on.
