South Sydney forward George Burgess has agreed to a three-year deal with English side Wigan Warriors.
The move will see Burgess leave the Rabbitohs at the end of the season after ten years with the club where he played alongside brothers Tom and Sam.
“Although it’s a huge decision to leave the NRL and say goodbye to Souths,” Burgess said to wiganwarriors.com.
“I’m excited as to what the future will hold at Wigan Warriors and the Betfred Super League.
“It’s clear to me that there’s something special happening at Wigan Warriors in 2020 and beyond.”
Since making his debut in 2012, Burgess has played 147 times for South Sydney, scoring 13 tries.
