Former South Sydney prop George Burgess is reportedly on the lookout for a potential NRL return.
According to 9 News' Danny Weidler, St George Illawarra are understood to be leading the chase to land the English international, who is keen to move back to Australia and join a club outside of Sydney.
Burgess has been battling a hip injury across the past two years after sustaining a season-ending setback in his return to England, where he featured with Super League side Wigan Warriors.
