A potent mix of speed and skill, Duryea fitted the criteria to be taken with Hawthorn’s pick at 69 in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft. Duryea represented NSW/ACT at the 2009 Under 18 NAB AFL Championships. He is a crafty defender who possesses the ability to play either a lockdown or run-off role.
Duryea made his debut in Rd 3 of the 2013 season against Collingwood. He ended ump playing 18 games in his 2013 season, only finding himself just short of a Grand Final birth.
In season 2014 Duryea played 23 of a possible 25 games, averaging 15 disposals and finding a consistent place in Hawthorn’s experienced defensive unit. Duryea had a terrific first finals series and contributed to Hawthorn’s 2014 Premiership win, with the flag being his first. 2015 he was a part of the Hawthorn premiership winning team again after having another phenomenal season and an even better finals campaign.
Following the 2018 season Duryea was traded to the Western Bulldogs to join close friend and former teammate Matt Suckling.
