Harrison Bourke

23/03/2003, 200cm, 80kg, ruck/key forward

Grandson of the great Francis Bourke and son of David, Harrison is a young, raw ruck/key forward. Hungry to improve and learn, Harry can only benefit from a VFL pre-season as he develops his craft.
His great Grandpa played for the Tiggies as well. Would be a travesty if the kid developed up n some lowlife scum like Dodo snaffled him.

Getting old if Jughead’s son is running around in the VFL :cry:

News to me that David had a son. Thought he had 3 daughters. Gorgeous looking girls too by the way.

Similar jug head but bigger jug. Let's hope he has his mums body and she's a body builder
David Bourke took mark of the year over Hird
That stands up in my book.
Knowing our luck this Bourke will be s superstar but we won't have priority over him.

Given he’s 18 turning 19, I’m guessing he was draft eligible but not good enough

Remembering that David only played 85 games for Richmond making his son ineligible for F/S.

Yep, that was the main concern with him progressing. Just couldn't beef up no matter how much he ate.

Good fella David , I was in my car one day with my son who was primary school age at the time ironically on punt rd , and he pulled up next to us in the car , my son recognised him and got all excited . He wound down his window and had a quick chat to him before the lights went green .

Need 3 more seasons out of Marlion. Two boys. All the rest of our recent players are running at 95% girls.
I'd be checking the Punt Road water.

Actually, it's seriously strange how few male off-spring our ex-players produce. Might bear investigation.

In my family I was one of three boys with 5 sisters. But now have 9 nephews and just 4 nieces. It's all a statistical mystery.

What we need is for the Dustbag to marry that supermodel and giddy up.
