 Player Information
  Medium height defender/midfielder who played in the Central Districts SANFL premiership side in 2005. Highly touted and expected to be drafted earlier than he was, luckily for the Eagles he slipped to pick 13.

After debuting in 2006, Hurn played every game of the 2007 campaign, but was brought low when he broke his leg in a clash with a team mate early in the 2008 season and was unable to make it back from the injury list. His most well known attribute is a booming kick - something he has used to advantage to kick a few goals from very long range, but he is an accomplished player around the ground as well.

In 2009, as he gained experience, Hurn's deadly kick, coupled with a stronger defensive unit saw him blossom into an outstanding half back flanker who's ability to clear the defensive area was second to none. Injuries again took toll in 2010 - one of many Eagles struggling in that dark season, but when the Eagles returned to the top flight in 2011 Hurn played every game, and again in 2012. With over 100 games now to his name, Hurn has settled in as a very dangerous defender, and one that opposition teams always need to keep an eye on. Perhaps not the most dangerous player when he doesn't have the ball, it's when he does that the opposition worry, as Hurn is a core to the Eagles game plan.
