Never let the truth insult you Swanley. Mannering at any other NRL club skill wise was just another player. Mannering had a massive heart and a die-hard attitude and by all accounts so does Burr. Burr is just as fit, has a massive motor, runs faster, actually runs very good lines - something Mannering never did, offloads and is a tackling machine. He is a bloody good player and deserves his NRL reprieve.Seriously, I watched both trial games. Nothing Burr did set the world on fire... Did he bend the line, no. Did he smash blokes in one on one tackles, no. He's average at best.
When, he captain's his country and holds a club together defensively by himself, then you can compare him to mannering, but no way is he better. That's insulting.
Lets be honest, your questioning Kearney, O'Sullivan and Smith football knowledge by saying that Burr is a shit player and a shit selection. You are saying you know better than them. Shit players dont have several NRL sides pursue their signature. Shit players dont get paid the type of money that Burr is to be here in NZ.
Burr is the reason Pulu is in reserve grade currently. He is better at this time.
