Slammin’ Sam delays Rugby League return

Rugby League fans will have to wait a little longer than expected to see Sam Burgess.

Slammin’ Sam was due to mark his return in the annual All Stars match in Australia.

However, Burgess has withdrawn from the World All Stars team as he is still returning to peak fitness.

This year marks the first time a World All Stars team will take on the Indigenous All Stars.

The World All Stars team was originally planned to consist of four players from England, New Zealand and Australia.

Gareth Widdop, James Graham and Tom Burgess are in the squad.
