Barrett: 'Buhrer's a real leader'

Sea Eagles Coach Trent Barrett says the appointment of Jamie Buhrer as co-captain is a reward for the quality traits the back-rower shows on and off the field.

β€œHe has really emerged as a real leader for us this year, Jamie. Through the tough times we have had, he really stood up and helped keep the team together,’’ Buhrer said.

The respected forward will share the captaincy duties against Parramatta Eels tonight with Manly junior Jake Trbojevic.
