Despite having 18 months left on his current contract, South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Tom Burgess has been offered to rival clubs.
Burgess’ management has been offering his services to other clubs, according to the Daily Telegraph, with several Sydney clubs apparently hunting the hulking England international.
The prop has a contract with Souths until the end of 2023, but it remains to be seen whether the club will want to re-sign Burgess beyond that considering the likes of Cam Murray, Davey Moale, Keaon Koloamatangi, Jai Arrow and Tevita Tatola are on-contract.
Burgess has registered almost 200 appearances for Souths, but the 29-year-old looks like he may well end his decade-long stay at the Sydney club.
However, the Rabbitohs’ football manager, Mark Ellison dismissed the idea.
“Tom is going great and we want him to stay,” Ellison told Wide World of Sports.
“He has an option his way for 2024 so whatever happens, he will be with us for next season at least – and hopefully longer.”
The Dewsbury-born forward made the move to the Rabbitohs back in 2013 after registering almost 50 appearances for the Bradford Bulls in the UK Super League.
At the time, little was known about Tom and his twin George, as well as older brother Sam, but the Burgess brothers have become the most famous band of brothers ever in rugby league.
