Cameron Zurhaar Biography

Monday, 23 March 2020
Nick Larkey and Cameron Zurhaar apologize for hosting a house party hours after playing in the Kangaroos' win over St Kilda at Marvel Stadium in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The AFL has since put the 2020 AFL season on hold due to the escalating coronavirus crisis.

Tuesday, 26 November 2019
Cam Zurhaar signs a two-year contract extension with North Melbourne after playing 19 games in a breakout 2019 season.

The 21-year-old kicked 26 goals, including bags of five against St Kilda and Carlton, and became an integral part of North's forward line.

"I am stoked. It was just good to get the pressure off and get it [the contract] done. To get another contract gives you time, makes you more comfortable," he said.

Saturday, 1 June 2019
Cameron Zurhaar tallies a career-high 11 tackles against Richmond at Marvel Stadium, including five in the first quarter.

The West Australian battering ram, known as 'Bull' to his teammates, didn't kick a goal in the Roos' 37-point demolition of Richmond, yet was one of their best players with his tone-setting pressure.

"I like to hit them hard. I'm a WA boy, and we were born to hit hard. Forward-half tackles are just massive for me. I love tackling people, I can't complain about that, but I also like getting on the scoreboard, because I'm a forward – everyone does," he said.

"I'm definitely feeling more comfortable, and I feel like I belong in the side. I guess if I just bring my forward-half pressure, I'll get games.

"It took me a little bit (to break into the team), which is a bit upsetting on my behalf, but it's the best feeling in the world playing AFL footy and being around these types of blokes and being out on the big stage."

Monday, 6 May 2019
Cameron Zurhaar earns the round 7 AFL Rising Star nomination after a five-goal performance in North Melbourne's 58-point win over Carlton at Marvel Stadium.

"As a kid you probably dream about kicking five goals in a winning team, and I'm fortunate that it happened," Zurhaar said.

After a 2018 season in which played five AFL games and was an emergency eight times before suffering a season-ending broken ankle, Zurhaar has now strung together four AFL games for the first time in his career.

"Continuity is a massive thing for young players. Just being able to play consistent games week-in, week-out in the VFL side really helps your development," Zurhaar said.

"It's been good to get in the (AFL) side early in the season and play my role and play some good footy."

Friday, 20 July 2018
Cameron Zurhaar signs a new contract with North Melbourneto to remain with the Kangaroos until the end of 2020.

"Longevity, that's what I was really looking for, so it was definitely good to finally get the contract done," Zurhaar said.

"It's so good to think about what we can achieve as a group too. All the boys are young, everyone gets along so well at the club, so it's just a great environment to be part of."

Tuesday, 10 July 2018
Cam Zurhaar is set to be sidelined for the next eight to 10 weeks with a broken ankle suffered during North's win over the Gold Coast.

"When Cam was unable to put any significant weight through his right lower leg, our medical team suspected something serious on Sunday," North football manager Cameron Joyce said.

"He wasn't able to take any further part in the game and scans have revealed a small break in his ankle."

Thursday, 27 July 2017
Cameron Zurhaar signs a new deal with North Melbourne that will keep him at the club until the end of 2018.

"I love the club, I'm happy here in Melbourne, it's gone really quick. It's already 11 months in, it's pretty crazy, I'm good mates with all the players here now," Zurhaar said.

"There's a lot of pressure because you only have a one-year deal. You're just hoping for another year and to get some good games under your belt.

"I had high expectations going into the season and set some pretty ambitious targets. I was hoping to make my debut but wasn't sure if I would, given the amount of young talented players we have on the list."

Saturday, 15 July 2017
Cameron Zurhaar makes his AFL debut for North Melbourne at Adelaide Oval with 6 disposals (4 kicks and 2 handballs), a mark and 3 tackles in a 70-point loss to Port Adelaide.
Thursday, 13 July 2017
Cameron Zurhaar will make his debut for North Melbourne this week against Port Adelaide.

"He's a really powerful young forward even though he's only in his first year. We're really confident he'll acquit himself really well," North Melbourne coach Brad Scott said.

"He's got some genuine speed and power and we're keen to see what he can do at AFL level."

Thursday, 6 July 2017
Cameron Zurhaar is elevated to North Melbourne's senior list.

"He plays with real verve and energy and he's got some genuine power," Kangaroos coach Brad Scott said.

"He doesn't shirk any contests. For a first-year player, he looks like a 25-year-old out there.

"He's really taken all before him the last couple of weeks. There are still some areas of his game that we want to sharpen up, and he's really made some solid improvements. That's why he's in the mix for selection."

Monday, 28 November 2016
North Melbourne select Cameron Zurhaar with pick No.11 in the 2016 Rookie Draft.

“Cameron is a forward/midfielder who is very powerful and aggressive, with a really good pair of hands," North Melbourne recruiting manager Bryce Lewis said.

“He had a bit of an injury interrupted start to the season, but made his way back for the nationals.

“He’s shown at East Fremantle that he’s been able to go through the midfield. That’s an area of his game he’s going to need to continue to work on, but we think he has a fair amount of scope to develop his game.”
