He featured in 20 games, mainly as the utility option from the bench.
He was 'Mr Fix-it' for the Knights, playing in the backrow, hooker, centre and even five-eighth.
The 29-year-old had an injury scare in the Round 14 clash against the Sydney Roosters.
Buhrer was forced from the field with fears he'd torn his ACL but scans cleared him of anything serious and he returned to the line-up two weeks after against the Bulldogs in Round 16.
Buhrer is contracted until the end of 2019.
