Burgess in line for shock return

George Burgess has not ruled out a return to Wigan.

The England international was speaking on the Out of Your League podcast and says he has chatted with Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan about coming back to the DW Stadium.

“Definitely. Definitely. If I was going to come back and play it would be at Wigan,” Burgess said.

“I’ve spoken to Ian Lenagan about it already, and he said if I’m good to go he’ll be more than happy to have me back. That’s a conversation we’ve already had.

“Me and (wife) Jo and the kids have already been here, we know what it entails, we’ve got our friends here – if that was to come to pass we’d be more than happy to come back to Super League. I feel like I’d like to properly make a mark in Super League if I can.”

The English enforcer joined Wigan as a marquee player back in 2019, but wasn’t able to fulfil his potential after succumbing to an aggravating hip problem, but he says that surgery has helped considerably.

“I’m feeling really optimist about my future playing career. The chronic pain in my hip has gone.

“The early signs are good, I’m quite positive about it. I still feel like I’ve got a lot to offer.”
