Super League club chasing huge Tom Burgess transfer

Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Hull KR; we have seen some Super League clubs confirm major signings for 2024 and some huge signings are set to unfold over the next few months.

One of these is a potentially huge move for England international Tom Burgess who has been tearing it up in the NRL for a decade.

Burgess set alarm bells ringing when he spoke about his desire to play in Super League at the World Cup last year and specifically for Leeds Rhinos.

But as his future becomes a question again, another Super League club has emerged as a potential destination with big brother Sam Burgess headed to Warrington Wolves as head coach and according to Zero Tackle he has identified Tom as his top target for the 2024 season in what would be one of the biggest transfers in Super League history.

It remains to be seen whether or not Sam is able to lure his brother to the Halliwell Jones but it would be an absolutely huge story.

Burgess will join the Wire for the 2024 Super League season having agreed a two-year contract.

Following his retirement from a decorated playing career in 2019, Burgess has transitioned into the coaching set-up at South Sydney Rabbitohs, currently working as an Assistant Coach for the NRL side.

Burgess is one of the most renowned and respected leaders in the global game. The former England captain famously led the Rabbitohs to the 2014 NRL title, being awarded the Clive Churchill Medal despite suffering a broken cheekbone in the opening minute.

He represented England and Great Britain on 26 occasions during his playing career and captained the national team to the World Cup Final in 2017 under the stewardship of Wayne Bennett.

As part of the review of the Rugby department, Gary Chambers will be promoted to Director of Rugby. He will have an overarching responsibility for the Rugby department from first team downwards.

Chambers will remain in interim charge for the remainder of the 2023 season before taking up the new role.

Richard Marshall will remain as Assistant Coach with a further update about a second Assistant to be announced in due course.
