Three-year extension

Utility forward Jamie Buhrer has signed a three-year extension with the Manly Sea Eagles, ensuring his immediate NRL future.

After making just 5 appearances in 2010, the 21 year old had a break out season for the Sea Eagles this year. Buhrer made  26 appearances in 2011, predominantly from the bench, which was enough to ensure a new contract at the club.

Buhrer’s parents, die-hard Manly fans, thought all their Christmases had come at once when they watched their boy Jamie play 10 minutes in the second half from the stands with a 30-strong Buhrer clan.

“He said it was the best 10 minutes of his life,” Mr Buhrer said.

“It was unreal, really good,” he said.
