Shute Shield: 12 new or returning players that could shake up 2024 premiership race

Here are 12 new or returning players that could have a big impact on the competition in the months ahead.

Max Burey - Norths

On the back of his first full season of Super Rugby, Norths utility back Max Burey has been called in to the Aussie 7s extended squad for a training camp up in Darwin this week. Maurice Longbottom has been under an injury cloud and from all reports, Burey is next in line for a spot in the Olympic squad if Longbottom can’t prove his fitness.

If he isn’t in Paris, Burey will add plenty to a Norths side that aren’t quite clicking at the moment.
