Jamie Buhrer announced his retirement from professional Rugby League at the end of the 2019 season and he finished his career with a brief cameo in the Canterbury Cup NSW with the Newcastle Knights.
He played 11 games in the competition last season and averaged 109m and 35 tackles per game, while providing invaluable experience for a youthful Knights outfit.
The 30-year-old made his NRL debut with Manly Warringah Sea Eagles in 2010 before winning a maiden premiership with the club in 2011, and finished his career with 173 first-grade games and one appearance for the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues.
His utility value earned him a seven-minute stint off the interchange bench in Game One of the 2012 State of Origin series, although was overlooked for the remaining fixtures.
He joined the Knights in 2017 and was named co-captain under former coach Nathan Brown, and became a core part of the Knights' re-building phase which has now culminated into a long-awaited NRL finals appearance this year.
Buhrer bid farewell to a wonderful Rugby League career at the end of last year's regular season before joining the Belrose Eagles' in the Sydney Shield and helped them to a Preliminary Final berth.
