If he was ever going to thrive it was going to be outside Thurston as he could let him do the creative work and go about Burnsing (perhaps it's even partly why he is the way he is?) and that didn't work so it's definitely not going to work with Walsh. I'd have used the offseason to work with Coote and try to push him up to five-eighth so Gordon could play fullback, but instead they've used the offseason to yet again convince people into giving Burns another chance because Mr. Preseason himself has unsurprisingly starred in a couple of trials.
    I'm on the bandwagon tbh. He hasn't progressed as a half this year. Looks worse than ever.

    His second try yesterday was typical Burns. Awful grubber that an NRL standard 6 would be ashamed of. Gets to the Souffs player first, one on one strip to score a try.

    What do we do with him? We can't keep him at 6 but there's got to be a place on the footy field for a guy with that much determination.

    Burns to lock, Seijka 6, Nathan Smith to Windsor or at best, the bench.

    He's tiny for a backrower though, only 85kg. He deals well with blokes bigger than him but there's a difference between hitting a wide running backrower once or twice a game and having prop forwards running at you all day. Is it really as simple as bulking him up a bit and dumping him there?

    You're right, I could well have screamed my voice away by half time.

    That's a pretty pessimistic attitude to take though. Show some pride man!

    Man with Graham on the left and Bukuya on the right the Sharks look pretty good in the middle. Just rolling over the Manly forwards.

    Always enjoy watching two teams up against each other battling it out to avoid the spoon.
