Super League

Sam Burgess to come out of retirement and join Super League club

Sam Burgess is a legend of rugby league.

The forward started his career at Bradford Bulls where it soon became clear he was a special talent and by 2010 he was being signed by NRL giants South Sydney Rabbitohs.

There he became a club legend guiding the Bunnies to Grand Final glory in 2014 winning the Man of the Match with a broken cheekbone.

He then had a brief stint in rugby union at the end of which there were rumours he could join Leeds Rhinos but instead he finished his career at the Rabbitohs before being forced into retirement meaning we never saw him again in Super League until now…

April Fools!

Did you fall for this? Either way don’t spoil it for others.

Burgess is of course, after getting over some recent controversies, coaching at South Sydney Rabbitohs as assistant to former Wakefield Trinity star Jason Demetriou.

He was a name some linked with the vacant Castleford Tigers job by some but the former England international is set on learning his trade at South Sydney.

Many believe he could take over there one day but there is a good chance we could see him coach in Super League one day.

His brother Tom is still playing for South Sydney and signed a new deal recently despite an admission during the Rugby League World Cup that he would like a Super League move especially to boyhood club Leeds Rhinos.

If his big brother were to return to come out of retirement and return to Super League, where do you think he would end up?

Wakefield Trinity are perhaps the club who need him the most but would he join Leeds or perhaps one of the competition favourites like Wigan Warriors or St Helens.
