Sam Burgess looks ready to start his business empire after buying the Bayview Hotel at Woy Woy alongside brother Luke – with a hint that it could be the beginning of many such purchases.
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.
But, he and brother Luke look destined for more millions with the expansion into his friend, Stu Laundy’s family business.
The former NRL players confirmed the news with The Sunday Telegraph, issuing a joint statement saying: “We are extending our longstanding friendship into a working relationship.
“We have a huge amount of respect for what the Laundy family have created and we’re both extremely excited to be working with the best in the business.”
Laundy told The Sunday Telegraph that the Burgesses can step into any establishment of theirs to buy.
“The option is open to Luke and Sam to buy into any pub they want with Dad and me, we are best mates,” he said.
“Both Sam and Luke are close friends of the Laundy family.”
