Club enters race for ex-Wigan Warriors man George Burgess

George Burgess was released by St George Illawarra Dragons last week after the move to the Dragons failed to re-kindle his career after an injury hit spell in Super League with Wigan Warriors.

That spell in Super League hasn’t deterred his twin brother and England star Tom from talking up a move himself to the English league as he even name dropped “Leeds Rhinos” as a supporter of the club when he was young.

However, if there was any hope of seeing Tom Burgess it may have been undone by a potential reunion with George at South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Now a free agent and looking for a club, but saying that he wants to stay in Australia, George Burgess’ former club Souths have entered the race for him according to ZeroTackle and the Sunday Telegraph.

Burgess, alongside his brothers Tom and Sam, was a key part of the Bunnies team who won the 2014 NRL Grand Final scoring a memorable try.

At one stage all four Burgess boys, including former Leeds Rhinos man Luke Burgess, were at Souths. But after Luke left to Manly prior to a return to Super League, Sam’s medical retirement, and George’s Wigan move all made Tom the last of the Burgess boys to still be at South Sydney despite being the last of the four to make his NRL debut.

But he may yet be re-joined by his twin George next season with the Rabbitohs considering a move for the prop.
