The Aquis Gold Coast Titans can confirm that Lachlan Burr has accepted a one-year deal to play in England for the Bradford Bulls.
The 24-year-old has spent the last two seasons here on the Gold Coast and after his current deal had expired, the Revesby Heights junior was uncertain as to where his future would be spent.
Burr will link up with former Titans Assistant Coach Rohan Smith who is now in charge at Bradford and the back rower is looking forward to the experience.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“At this stage I definitely want to stay in the middle – lock position, preferably. I want to work on being an 80-minute lock and if I can do that then I’ll be pretty happy.”
Burr made 14 appearances for the Titans over his two-year stint and also played an integral part in the Burleigh Bears Intrust Super Cup Premiership this season.
