Has improved as the season kicked on. Seems to be a little more rugged with his approach & his contact both in defence & attack seem tougher. Rewarded with a great angled run for a try that will be great for confidence leading into the finals. Earlier this year Buhrer seemed to be coming off the bench & had little impact, not playing poor but seemed outmuscled at times. Have noticed recently he has stepped up in this area & in the heat of battle gives plenty. A player not in the Stewart/Lyon /Foz catagory but has always had ability & with his recent lift of intensity, will prove vital in the games ahead.
