All 10 of "Irish" O'Rourke's appearances in his last season at the Demons were as a reserve, one of only a handful of league players to be named a reserve ten times or more before interchange.
After Fitzroy showed interest, the rover joined North Melbourne in 1949. They asked Melbourne to clear him after seeing him impress in a pre-season game. O'Rourke played the first nine games of the season there, before transferring to VFA side Brighton.

Described as a player who "can play practically all positions on the field" in 1948, which is not consistent with a rover.
