Rabbitohs star forward Sam Burgess will be remaining in South Sydney for a fair while yet.
As expected, the Rabbitohs today announced the retention of Burgess on a long-term deal, that will keep him at the club until the end of 2023.
At that point, Burgess will be 34 years old, meaning that he’s now effectively a Bunny for life. The next question will be whether or not long-term extensions for his brothers will follow.
Burgess has played 160 first grade games for the Rabbitohs, and 24 Tests for Great Britain and England.
