At A Glance

Recruited from: East Fremantle
Draft: #11, 2016 Rookie

Strengths

- Powerful in the contest
- Hard at the ball

Background: Pre-NMFC

 

Zurhaar was selected with pick 11 in the 2016 Rookie Draft.

A forward/midfielder, he played for East Fremantle and lined up for Western Australia at the under-18 championships.

Hard at the football and known for his power in the contest, Zurhaar boasts a strong build for a player new into the AFL system. 

Season by season

Season by season

Zurhaar enjoyed a breakthrough season, and made a name for himself as one of the most exciting young players in the AFL.

After being called up to the AFL in Round 4, the number 44 played in each game until the end of the season, kicking the equal-second most goals for the club (26).

Zurhaar earned the Round 7 Rising Star nomination for a 5-goal performance, while his 11 tackles in the win over Richmond solidified his standing as a new cult hero. 

2018

A broken ankle brought Cameron Zurhaar’s year to a premature end after playing five games, in which he made a solid impact on the side.

Getting his first opportunity in Round 5 against Hawthorn, the 20-year-old kicked two goals, including the sealer, and brought great pressure to North’s forward 50. 

Zurhaar found himself in and out of the side between Rounds 7 and 16, until he suffered a season-ending injury against the Suns. 

The rookie was rewarded for his efforts with a contract extension which will see him remain a rookie in 2019, before being elevated to the senior list in 2020.

2017

Picked up in the 2016 Rookie Draft, Cameron Zurhaar made a strong impression in his first season at North Melbourne, impressing in the VFL with Werribee.

Zurhaar’s performances didn’t go unnoticed, and he was handed an AFL debut for the round 17 clash with Port Adelaide.

Zurhaar would go onto notch 4 games at senior level, with a two-goal effort against Hawthorn being a standout effort.
