    Big opportunity for him now, and I feel it is time for him to step up as well

    Although he got a run in origin, I feel like his play has stagnated a bit this season. Not at a terrible level or anything, just lacking a bit from where I expected him to kick onto. Hopefully a starting role may spark him up. Would love to see him cut the penalties out of his game as well

    He has all the ability required to be a key player for us in Glenns spot

    Id love to see Buhrer at lock, he has good hands and he has a kicking game, hes a fast mover on the edges with good vision, we wouldnt be weakening ourselves by giving it a shot, forgot to mention the kid is a great defender !

      Gives away too many penalties. Other than that doesnt add a lot. I've got no idea why he was picked in soo 1.

      A player like him needs to be playing 80minutes consistently. Otherwise he is just filling gaps and finding it hard to get into the rhythm of the game.

      According to Tooves' after match conference T-rex is still a few weeks away. After our next bye apparently.

        Buhrer just needs minutes on the field. I think he's quality when given the opportunity and his workrate will really help choc in particular in the forwards.

          Jamie is the Baby Beaver - he just needs to play a few full games to pick up the positional play of the Team.

            Its great to see him playing lock now, When gifty hurt himself after rd 1 they had harrison playing in lock and i always thought buhrer should have gotten the gig, He has an awesome passing game(remembering 1st semi last yr against the cowboys his BEAUTY of a spiral pass to robbo after he made a break down field) and also has that good footwork and is prepared to do the tough stuff when needed. IMO buhrer has the potential to one day take giftys position in the future, Id love to see him do some work with joey johns in the offseason with selective passing and maybe a little kicking aswell to channel those skills and be able to help him identify the right time to throw a long or short pass or put in a little kick behind the defensive line. I honestly believe this guy is our future.

            Last season tipped Buhrer as a SOO chance but tbh feel he was lucky to get a spot on form in 2012.
            Reminds me a bit of Choc when he 1st broke into the NRL & lacked a bit of size. The extra 5-7 kg of granite has transformed him from a good player with a big motor into 1 of the top few backrowers in the world. Dont get me wrong here, Choc is naturally a more aggressive physical player, whereas Buhrer is more silky with a touch of Beaver(unfortunately not a clone).
            Still believe an extra few kg will make a world of difference.
            I still think he will lift 10-15% by seasons end & we will all be happy with where he is at.

            Spot on NFN2IT. He also has a fantastic turn of foot which should see him eventually provide more opportunities than Gifty.
