Burgess signs new contract with South Sydney

Towering South Sydney prop Thomas Burgess has signed a new contract with the NRL champions, which will keep him at the club until the end of the 2016 season.

Since linking up with the Rabbitohs after joining from English side Bradford Bulls, Burgess has become a key part of the Rabbitohs pack, and played during their World Club Challenge victory against St Helens earlier this year.

He admits he’s delighted to be staying with the Bunnies for another year, and says the move to sign on again with South Sydney is the best for his career.

“I’m really excited about signing on for another year with the Rabbitohs,’ Burgess said.

“I’m really enjoying my time with the club. We’ve got a great set of lads here, and in the end the decision to stay is what I think is best for my career.

“I want to create more memories at this club and I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead, starting with the game against the (North Queensland) Cowboys this Monday night.’
