SAM BURGESS

ONE OF THE GREATEST ENGLISHMEN TO PLAY RUGBY LEAGUE IN AUSTRALIA

Sam Burgess, remembered by many as the man who put in a Clive Churchill Medal winning performance playing the entire 2014 NRL Grand Final with a broken cheekbone started his Rugby League career in England, debuting for the Bradford Bulls in 2006. After a great first season he was named as Young Player of the Year in the Super League.

Sam signed with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2010 after being enticed by Rabbitohs owner, Russell Crowe and his vision to turn the club into world beaters. Since then, Sam’s Rugby League career has been nothing short of sensational, with the 2014 season a particular highlight:

  • Winner of the NRL Grand Final
  • Clive Churchill Medal Winner
  • George Piggins Medal Winner
  • Jack Rayners Players’ Player Award Winner
  • Bob McCarthy Clubman of the Year Award Winner
  • Burrow Appreciation Award Winner

 
In 2014, Sam made the switch from Rugby League to Rugby Union and moved back to the UK. He spent the 2014/15 season playing for Bath Rugby and was later selected to play for England in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Sam has since returned to the NRL and his beloved Rabbitohs for the 2016 season.
