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, Sam was named as Young Player of the Year in the Super League.

In 2010, Sam signed with the South Sydney Rabbitohs 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. His achievements include;

  • 2014 NRL Grand Final Premiership
  • Clive Churchill Medallist
  • Three time George Piggins Medallist
  • Four time Jack Rayner Player’s Player 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 spent the 2014/15 season playing for Bath Rugby in the UK. Sam’s extraordinary skill and ability on the pitch saw him flourish in rugby union’s format, ensuring his selection in the England squad to represent his country at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Sam returned to the NRL and the Rabbitohs in 2016 and continues to play for his beloved club.
