The ex-girlfriend of North Melbourne player Cameron Zurhaar has taken a pointed swipe at the AFL star after their break-up.

Zurhaar and Instagram influencer Hannah Orval reportedly went their separate ways last week after dating for a year.

Over the weekend, Orval took to social media to note how quickly Zurhaar appeared to have re-entered the dating game.

“For all the girls messaging me overnight with photos etc … myself and Cam split up just a couple of days ago!!,” she wrote.

“Thanks for all your support and letting me know just in case etc.

“It’s nice to see that he’s moved on so nice and quick.”

Orval is the daughter of former Collingwood player Mark Orval, who played seven AFL games with the Magpies in 1987 and 1988.

She is reportedly on the verge of launching her own streetwear fashion label.

Cameron Zurhaar’s controversial 2020

Zurhaar caused controversy last year when he and teammate Nick Larkey threw a house party in the face of strict social-distancing rules during the height of the COVID-19 crisis in Melbourne.

The housemates, both 21, hosted a gathering in Kensington in March, just hours after playing in the Kangaroos' win over St Kilda at Marvel Stadium.

Patricia Ky, an anaesthetist at Royal Melbourne Hospital, told the ABC she approached the boys and asked them to stop the party.

“We all work together so if one of us has it, we all have it,” she claims was the response.

“I spoke to them early in the evening and asked them to keep in mind social-distancing, they failed to heed that advice and this morning when I came home from work they were still out, wandering in and out of the house.

“They're feeling young and invincible and that they're willing to risk asymptomatically infecting themselves in order to not suffer any inconvenience to their social lives and they're completely disregarding the risk they pose to others as they all leave that house.”

The Kangaroos followed up the complaint and the players were forced to apologise.

“The players unreservedly apologise and understand it was inappropriate in the current climate,” a North Melbourne Football Club spokesperson said in a statement.

Speaking on Footy Classified, veteran journalist Craig Hutchison blasted the players.

“On face value, this is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen,” Hutchison said.

“It’s decisions like that, as hard as this is to understand, that can cause a passage of this illness that can get someone killed.”

Co-host Caroline Wilson suggested the players had been sent mixed messages because they were allowed to play AFL, but Hutchison wasn’t buying it.

“That was a decision (to play footy) that they were asked to make, and they made it,” he said.

“They weren’t asked to take that home with them and to bring other people into their homes.”
