Sam Burgess has made another huge move to secure his future by securing a $38 million deal for the Bayview Hotel at Woy Woy alongside brother Luke.
Sam, who has recently been in Malta, has been in the limelight more than usual in the past few months, having been crowned victor of the SAS Australia reality TV show whilst his not guilty verdict for domestic violence was dropped by police.
That prompted his ex-wife Phoebe to call on the NRL to do more to help what she feels is a culture of misogyny.
“I look forward to the day the NRL takes action to clean up this game, which has become the punchline of every terrible joke about sexism, violence and cover-ups,” Phoebe told the Australian.
“This is not the first episode, nor will it be the last, so I ask the NRL not to take a step back when it comes to reforming codes of conduct that allow situations like these to simply disappear.”
The two Burgesses have joined together with pub baron Stu Laundy to buy the Barview after a bidding war took place in Sydney.
Burgess also avoided conviction for driving with cocaine in his system in February after pleading guilty to three driving charges following a police pull-over.
