The New Zealand Warriors have added some much needed depth to their back row stocks after confirming the signature of Lachlan Burr.

The second-rower has signed a two-year contract with the Warriors as the 26 year-old is amongst a few new faces on-board at the club for pre-season training.

Burr joins the Warriors after previous stints in the NRL with clubs the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and the Gold Coast Titans.

He also spent some time overseas in the English Super League in 2017 with clubs Leigh Centurions and Sheffield Eagles.

Once an Australian Schoolboy in 2010, Burr played some NYC footy for the Dogs before making his NRL debut for the club in 2013.

After one game for the Bulldogs, Burr shifted to the Titans for the 2015 and 2016 seasons, where he managed 23 NRL games before moving to the UK.

Burr returned to where it all began in 2018, helping the Bulldogs to victory over Newtown in theĀ Intrust Super Premiership title decider, along with success against Redcliffe in theĀ National State Championship encounter on the NRL Grand Final day.

Named the Dogs 2018 ISP player of the year, Burr averaged 120 metres along with 24 tackles in his 23 appearances and is aiming to repeat those stats for the Warriors in 2019.
