Early career[edit]

In 2008 and 2009, Buhrer played 47 games for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles' NYC team, scoring 15 tries in total.[4][5] In September 2009, he was named at lock in the 2009 NYC Team of the Year.[6]


In 2010, Buhrer graduated to the Sea Eagles' Queensland Cup team, Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles. In round 10 of the 2010 NRL season, he made his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles against the Parramatta Eels.[7]


Buhrer scored his first two tries in round 4 of the 2011 season against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, where he was playing at centre.[8] He played off the interchange bench in the Sea Eagles' 2011 NRL Grand Final win over the New Zealand Warriors.[9] Later on that month, he re-signed with the Sea Eagles on a 3-year contract until the end of 2014.[10]


In April, he played for New South Wales City against New South Wales Country in the annual City vs Country Origin match.[11] A month later, he gained selection for the New South Wales State of Origin team to take on Queensland in game one of the series in Melbourne on 23 May 2012.[12] He was subsequently dropped from the side.


In May, Buhrer returned to the New South Wales City side.[13] In September, he tore his anterior cruciate ligament, ruling him out for the rest of the season.[14] Later on that month, he re-signed with the Sea Eagles on a 3-year contract until the end of 2017.[15]


In October, after playing 128 games for the Sea Eagles, Buhrer was released from the final year of his contract to sign a 2-year contract with the Newcastle Knights starting in 2017.[16]


Upon joining the Knights, Buhrer formed part of the leadership group of the playing roster. He made his debut for the Knights in round 1 of the 2017 season against the New Zealand Warriors. During a training session in April, he suffered a fractured foot and is expected to miss up to eight weeks.[17]
