2017 marks Fred Burke’s third season in the National Rugby Championship, having been part of the Queensland Country squad in 2014 and 2015. Having moved to Australia from Canterbury ahead of the 2014 Queensland Premier Rugby season, Burke has been in career best form in 2017, establishing himself as one of the most damaging tight-head props in the competition. GPS’ set-piece, namely their scrum, was unrivaled throughout the season, with Burke acting as the corner-stone of the pack.
