Buhrer: 'I want to make an impact'

Fan favourite Jamie Buhrer is excited about pulling on the Manly NRL jersey again this Saturday.

Injuries have meant the premiership winning back-rower has played little football this season – the latest being a broken thumb suffered in the round four win over the Sydney Roosters.

He made a successful return from the thumb injury for Manly in the Intrust Super Premiership last Sunday, doing enough for Coach Trent Barrett to call him into the NRL side to play Cronulla.

“It has been a bit of a tough trot for myself, but I have had the opportunity to work on a bit of everything and do a bit of maintenance. I’m feeling quite fresh coming into round 11,’’ Buhrer said today.

“I am just keen to get out there and make an impact for the boys.”
