Rumours around George Burgess’ departure from his brothers at the Rabbitohs may become a reality, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Despite his desire to continue playing in the NRL over a club in the Super League, Burgess said he’ll be taking his future endeavours “a year at a time.”
“It would be nice to keep playing with my brothers but we don’t live in a perfect life,” he said. “All good things come to an end.”
With talk suggesting he may be signing with the Broncos, Burgess gave a cryptic “maybe, maybe not,” response.
“I’m just trying not to think about it too much,” he said.
“I’m just trying to focus on playing, to be honest.”
Burgess got a feel of a potential new home, as all 16 teams headed up to Brisbane for the Magic Round last week.
“I think it was a great success being up in Brisbane, a really good rugby league town,” he said.
“Seeing and crossing paths with other teams was great.”
Twin brother Tom said his fear of George’s departure may mean playing against him in another team.
“We’ve done the brother thing and that’s been great, we’ve had a great couple of years,” he said.
“I wouldn’t like to tackle him in a competitive game, I’ve never done that before, but there’s a first for everything.”
A family move back to the UK in the future for the Burgess brothers may also have potential, as George believes “anything is possible”.
Tom, who’s signed on until 2023, has also not ruled out the possibility of returning to the homeland as well.
“My missus is over in England at the moment, she is loving it, she wants to move there,” he said. “I would always like to move back to England at some point in my life, and have a stint back over there.”
The brothers have connections to Super League club Bradford Bulls although Hull FC have expressed their interest in signing George.
“Bradford beat Leeds on the weekend, in the Challenge Cup so, Bradford are on the way back up,” Tom said. “Maybe all the boys that came from Bradford might come back there one day.”
