South Sydney prop George Burgess has reached out to Broncos coach Anthony Seibold in a bid to potentially join Red Hill and relieve salary cap pressure on the Rabbitohs, per Channel Seven.
Additionally, Burgess’ wife Joanna has family on the Sunshine Coast which could make for a seamless transition.
However, the Broncos would have to offload a significant amount of salary to accommodate for Burgess.
The Bunnies recently locked away Burgess’ brother Tom until the end of 2023 despite the 26-year old being poached by Parramatta. But the club remains undecided on the future of George.
“We haven’t reached an agreement with George, we’re hanging on and waiting to see what happens, and we have salary-cap commitments,’’ South Sydey football manager Shane Richardson told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“When George knocked back Parra the other day he said he wanted to stay on and play his best and see what happens.
“He believes he has a value in the market, and he certainly has, he will probably test that, but we’ll wait and see.’’
