Luke Burt
Wants to keep playing

Parramatta Eels veteran Luke Burt believes he’s playing the best football of his NRL career and insists he’s more than happy to remain on the wing, despite a successful switch to fullback last week.

The 30-year-old is off-contract at the end of next season and hopeful of securing a new deal that will take him into at least the 2013 campaign.

“I am not sure why, but I am feeling really good this season, it was quite well documented what a tough pre-season we had, but it really worked for me,” said the Eels’ record points scorer.

“I have just turned 30, the deal I have takes me up until I’m 31, but I am confident I can play until I am 32-33 and I would love to stay here and finish my career at Parra.

“I love the club and feel very at home here.”
