South Sydney Rabbitohs and English international Tom Burgess suggest a potentially big move

Tom Burgess is the first and last Burgess to reach 200 NRL appearances after being with the South Sydney Rabbitohs for almost a decade.

The big striker was the last Burgess to join Russell Crowe’s revolution in Sydney back in 2013, but Tom has become one of the most impressive overseas players to reach it in the Australian competition.

And despite having another year to run on his Souths deal, the 30-year-old confirmed that his British manager Chris Caisley is busy measuring potential interest in Tom from rival clubs.

“I still have another year left, but that’s the business we’re in, you need to see what’s out there,” Burgess said. Sydney Morning Herald.

“I do not want to go. But I know how it works. I have been lucky to be in the Souths for so long, my brothers did not get that far, and I am grateful that I have joined the Souths to reach 200. fights, which is something I never thought I would do.

“Chris takes care of my interests. He needs to see what’s out there for me.

“I’m not so worried about how many more matches I play. I want quality over quantity. Another big final would be nice.”

Burgess also wants to reach 300 NRL games – something that would really etch his name into the record books.

“I would love to be 34 and reconsider. No Englishman has made 300 NRL games. I never limit myself. I’m fine now. I want to keep going.”

Burgess is obviously looking for a place in Shaun Wane’s English squad for the World Cup at the end of the year and will probably be a starting prop at home.
