Walker will be at Manly in 2016 but it is going to cost us Buhrer. There you have it.
Where did you read or hear this?
If that's what it took I don't hate that move. Don't really trust Buhrers knees anymore.
I don't post on here often but I do like to read the posts on here. However, I will post on here when I have confirmed news. Obviously it is from a source close to the action but I will not name the source.
Seems likely as there were to be 2 key signings with Kapow being the first. The 2nd seems to have been delayed for 2016, opening up Walker who was not the initial choice as that 2nd signing. Happy enough with Walker as he is a quality long term option, covering many positions.....& has genuine speed.
Agree plus i also would love walker to be here next year this kid can tackle & has speed.
Why not Burgess to Drugcastle and Walker to Manly.
You were on the money with Mason @phantom - so as sad as it is (I really rated Buhrer) I think it is a strong signing
Probably a solid result for both party's hope he signs a nice long contract with newcastle that covers his future in the event of ongoing injury issues.
Thanks voicefromthehill you have a good memory. I will also be on the money with my Will and Jamil Hopoate post a few months back. Anyway I too liked Buhrer who was a clever footballer but 2 knee ops and we have a stack of back rowers who can do the job for Barrett I think we will be better off with Walker on our books. Time will tell how he works out for us.
What am I supposed to do with my Buhrer the Fuhrer sign?
Jamil seen training with the 20s last night
This is a crap move! Buhrer bleeds maroon and white and is a better player than walker and on less money anyway! Absolutely ridiculous! Burgess, Symonds, Starling and Hodges should be moved on not Jamie! Walker is a bad signing!
Thanks for the tip, Mr Walker
NoOoOoOOOO ! Buhrer is amazing - this would suck if true ! Maybe the club sees Demetriou as an entity? Then again, we could go:- 11. Feleti Mateo 12. Tom Symonds 13. Marty Taupau 17. Lewis Brown Which is still pretty handy.
Seems strange, they would only be doing this if they don't have confidence in Buhrer's fitness otherwise there are plenty of guys who are behind him in the pecking order both in the short and long term. Disappointing to lose players we should keep, especially ones who could be a 10 year, 200+ first grade game player for you.
Give The Knight's Lewis Brown. I'd much prefer Buhrer.
They are not that silly unfortunately
If this is true I am sad to see ferris go however we I think u will find they have tried to move on Mateo, Lawrence, burgess etc however no one wants them so we have had to sacrifice buhrer
So, let Walker sit out a year, or ask his management to allow him to play for us with two contracts signed:- 1. This year on nominal money 2. The following year (when Mateo, Burgess, Lawrence ARE off contract) he gets his raise. Maybe this is succession for Lyon, but I seriously hope we aren't considering this guy a 5/8.
