    I'm looking forward to Buhrer to stiffen up the defence for the first time in a long while. Seems ages since he and Matty Ballin contributed 100 tackles a game between them. Our results show this.

    Only a small bloke but could be our forward leader as he is hard working and very Manly!

    He was developing really well until he copped his knee injuries. Did he play last week? I didn't see the game.

    He had a run in NSW Cup last week Av8r...

    I just had a strange thought/recollection...didn't Buhrer have a game or two for us at 5/8 a few years back, and not disgrace himself? May have been after the Battle of Brookvale when we had about six players suspended for one thing or another, and we went up to Bronco territory with a makeshift side and nearly came away with the win. Recall him offloading a blinder to T-Rex, who did a no-look pass to somebody, and we scored. Just a passing thought, anyway...would stop us worrying about Walker's turnstile defence for a bit. And yes, I've had sillier thoughts.

    Sharks have a really big and mobile side, we will need some solid defence

    Agree. We'll need that solid defence from wing to wing. I hope Jamie gets his game on this week.

    Ferris will be great at settling Chez down :)

    Having Ferris back in the side will free up Nate to play his natural game. You know, the block busting 30m runs, off loads in traffic, leading the kick chases and smothering opposition halfbacks all day.

    We'll win this game!

    Seriously though, jokes aside...it will be fantastic to see Ferris out there!! :happy:

    That's wishful thinking HM @:D

    Yes Ferris will be good for DCE, and good for the team. It will be great to see him back. Just hope he can keep his body intact!

    Ferris hasn't played a game of footy in over 12 months. Coming back from a broken jaw against a strong in form pack. Great to have him back but let's be realistic in our expectations of him.

    I'll never forget the 2011 semi final versus the Cows when he made a beautiful break in our 20 and then threw a beautiful rocket ball to Snake (hehe never forget but not sure on this bit!) for a great try...

    Not quite Woodsie - he came back from the broken jaw earlier this year...lasted 20 minutes then broke his thumb. D'Oh!

    (Having said that, he was playing a cracking game up to that point - like he had a huge point to prove...)

    Apart from last weekend where he was man of the match in reserve grade?

    Usually I don't allow facts to get in the way of a good story, but I agree with you.

    However my point remains.

    And a fair point it is, too. Though if anyone can come back and have a blinder after aaaalmost 12 months out of the game, it'll be him.

    Enjoy - it was such an amazing night :clap:

    Ferris to Robbo - Matty scored.

    Ferris also saved Killer's brain fad by extending his robot arm and scoring from 3 meters out :rofl:

    Buhrer is the terrier warrior we've needed for quite some time. His presence even without Taupau raises the the level of our forward pack.

    See how many support players there were on that last break? Almost the entire team were charging in to keep the ball alive. Massively different from 2016, where we have little to no support on the rare occasion someone makes a half break...

    He set up 2 tries. 1 from a offload and 1 from a cut out pass which is better than any pass our #6 or #7 has thrown this year. Also got though quite a bit of work in defence. Without him on the field last week our NSW cup would have got towelled up.
