Lachlan Burr has confirmed his move from Canterbury to New Zealand in an Instagram post on Friday.

The 26-year-old starred in the Dogs’ reserve grade side last season, as was named as the team’s best player, but the second rower failed to make an NRL appearance in 2018.

Burr moves to the Warriors after 24 NRL appearances overall, one with the Dogs in 2013 and 23 with the Titans over the 2015-16 seasons.

The forward also had a stint in England, playing with Leigh in the Super League.

The Warriors haven’t officially confirmed the signing, although his signature is expected to be announced in the coming days.

  1. WHO? Well, I suppose even a nobody has a better chance of making a name for himself at the Warriors than Gerard Beale. Let’s face it, he can hardly do worse. 😂

  2. I always thought that Burr had some potential but just needed to take that next step up. Hope he does it at the Warriors.

  3. When I said the Warriors needs depth forwards I was kinda hoping they would sign an experienced bloke like Shaun Fensom or Sam tagatease to show lead the ISP team but also if injuries occur someone who can step it up for a game or two. Burr is a slightly above average ISP player who shouldn’t really be making many teams top 30 players. Someone who is better off playing in the UK.
