Burgess set to make surprise return

Ex-Wigan prop George Burgess is set to make his NRL comeback after undergoing successful hip surgery.

Channel Nine’s Danny Weidler took to Twitter, stating that Burgess “feels incredible” after his stint at Wigan was cut short by a hip injury, but that he is looking to live outside of Sydney.

That means a return to South Sydney Rabbitohs is unlikely, with St George Illawarra Dragons holding informal talks with the 29-year-old.

“George Burgess is looking at an NRL comeback – not after big dollars,” Weidler tweeted.

“He feels incredible after hip surgery. Looking at living outside of Sydney. Hearing of an informal discussion with the Dragons.”
