Xavier Duursma was Port Adelaide's third selection in the 2018 National Draft at Pick 18. The Gippsland Power skipper averaged 22.8 touches and a goal a game in the TAC Cup. Renowned for his speed and courage, Duursma’s father Dean Duursma was on Sydney and Melbourne’s AFL lists without playing a game until injury cut short his career. His uncle Jamie Duursma played 59 games for the Swans, Brisbane and the Demons.

TIMELINE

2019

The hard-running Duursma received plenty of attention this season for his exuberant goal celebrations, but what should not be lost amongst the noise is the brilliant debut year of footy he put together.

The Power’s third 2018 first-round selection (pick 18) played predominantly across half-back and the wing and averaged 19.6 touches through his 20 games in 2019.

His shining moment came in Round 6, when he became Port Adelaide’s second Rising Star Nominee for the year.
