A lifelong North Melbourne supporter, Tristan Xerri was recruited as a project player late in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

A 201cm ruck/forward, Xerri’s traditional ruck craft and tapwork are the most exceptional parts of his game, while is ability to impact the contest and follow-up his own hitouts has developed well in his years in North’s program.

After two years of strong development in the VFL, ‘X’ made his long-awaited AFL debut in 2020 and finished the year with four goals from four games.

North Melbourne debut: Round 4, 2020

2021: After missing out on selection in the senior side in the early part of the 2021 season, Xerri came out with a point to prove at VFL level.

Playing almost solely as a ruck, he dominated opponents at reserve level and was the shining light in a difficult start to the season for North’s reserve side.

After registering 36 disposals, 27 hitouts and 6 tackles in the Round 6 VFL victory over Essendon, his strong form could not be ignored as he earned a call up to the senior side.

Xerri was utilised in a different role at AFL level than in the VFL, splitting his time between the forward line and the ruck.

He made eight senior appearances in 2021 to take his overall career tally to 12 games.

While his forward craft is still developing, Xerri has shown time and time again he can be dominant force at VFL level, finishing runner-up in the John Law Medal, awarded to North’s best and fairest player, by just one vote despite only playing half a season.

Heading into the final year of his contact, it is now up to Xerri to prove he can make the leap from elite VFL performer to consistent AFL contributor in 2022.
