A new adventure is on the horizon for Lachlan Burr, with the former Canterbury Bulldogs player and Gold Coast Titans utility joining the Bradford Bulls.
Burr played in 14 NRL games for the Titans and was a member of the Burleigh Bears Intrust Super Cup premiership winning side.
Burr, predominantly a lock, can also play back-row and a couple of other positions, with the 1-year deal at Bradford something he looks forward to.
“It’s going to be life changing and a good experience,” Burr said.
“I’m pretty excited about joining the Bulls, even just to move to another country and experience that and the footie as well.”
He will again have the chance to work under Rohan Smith, a former assistant at the Titans, who is now the head coach of the Bulls. An opportunity that he looks forward to.
“It’s going to be a different kind of footy which I’m looking forward to. It’s a chance to work under Rohan again as Head Coach and it’s something I’m excited for,” Burr said.
“I always liked Rohan as a coach at the Titans. He’s a good coach and when I heard he was interested and wanted me to come over, it definitely drove me towards coming to the Bulls.”
Smith is also looking forward to working alongside Burr once more and knows what he is capable of.
The ultimate goal for Burr is to hold down a spot, preferably the lock position.
“At this stage, I definitely want to stay in the middle – lock position, preferably,” Burr added.
“I want to work on being an 80-minute lock and if I can do that then I’ll be pretty happy.”
“Lachlan is a tough, fit, hard-working back-rower and I am looking forward to working with him,” said Smith.
“He can play back row or at loose forward and is very capable of playing 80 minutes each week.
“Lachlan has come through two quality systems in the NRL at Canterbury Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans and is keen to establish himself as a key member of a team.”
