    Sure the Illawarra game was played tough & tight with the game often a slugfest, but Buhrer racked up 40+ tackles & 20 hitups.
    The impressive part about this - he has that explosive impact with good footwork,speed & deceptive strength for a smaller backrower & is usually more quality than quantity.
    This was a physical game & he definately was prepared to roll up the sleeves & get heavily involved.
    Shows Buhrer is not limited to the odd angle at the fringes of the ruck & with this style of grafting game he can step up.

    I must admit to being a little bit perplexed that when Glenny got injured he gave the starting spot to Harrison. It must be bulk thing, but I just see Buhrer really needing those minutes to help him develop. We have a lot of power type forwards, but he's almost unique with his mixture of footwork and suprising turn of speed. I think there is plenty of potential for him to work closer with our halves and becoming an attacking weapon, not just someone who racks up the stats doing the hard work.

    Love Buhrer, amazing work rate and seems to love the club. Doesn't seem to have the ego other players do.

    He was outstanding last week - everything he did was quality.

    He played a fair bit of halves with DCE at the Sunshine Coast, he has played wing, centre, back row, five-eighth and hooker at times and handled all (except maybe wing) with aplomb.

    I see him as a cross between Beaver and Gift with his swerving pace and ball playing ability - just a genuine footballer amongst a lot of athletes.

    Hopefully a starting spot in the back row in the future but with the three backrowers we have at the moment all current (or would have been except for circumstance) Australian backrowers it is a tough ask.

    Time for Buhrer and Lussick to show they can be the future of this club. They need to dominate Parra's decrepit pack. No excuses.

    He was our top metre gainer too with 120m. People talk about the way DCE reminds them of past greats, to me Buhrer is the new Beaver. Forget the headgear, just watch his fluent running style, footwork, ball skills. He's got a massive future ahead of him.

    No, I can't see the similarity with Beaver, who was a bigger, more dominant player and a cover defender.
    I reckon he is closer in size and skills to Fatty, who was a terrific player, could step, was quite fast and was a workhorse.

    I agree, It's the head gear that gets him Beaver like comparisons.

    nice try but too small for 2nd row. Hope he shoots up!

    He is on the small side but that does not matter as he has more than enough skills to make up for that, you realise he weighs about the same as Watmough?

    I see similarities. The way his he uses footwork and a little skip/shuffle before the line to make defenders miss is very reminiscent of Beaver IMO. He needs to continue to work on his combinations with DCE and Foran so he just doesn't turn into a workhorse type player and we underutilise his attacking skills.
