South Sydney Rabbitohs star George Burgess has admitted he’s keen to stay in the NRL despite reported interest from clubs in Super League.
Burgess is out of contract with Souths at the end of the season and has already reportedly rejected a three-year deal from Parramatta Eels stating at the time that he didn’t want to play for another NRL club.
But the English forward now doesn’t rule out moving to another NRL side with Brisbane Broncos a potential destination under former coach Anthony Seibold.
“Maybe. Maybe not,” he said.
“I really don’t know – I’m just trying not to think about it too much… I’m just focused on playing and that (the future) will take care of itself.”
But Burgess did say he’d rather stay in the NRL than go to Super League when asked which was his preference.
“It’d be nice to keep playing with my brothers (Sam and Tom) but we don’t live a perfect life and all good things come to an end… I’d like to stay in the NRL, if I could stay here it would be good.
“My body is feeling good. I’m 27 and feeling pretty fit,” he said. “I love footy. It’s my passion and I still enjoy turning up to training and trying to get better I will keep doing it for as long as I can.”
