The Rabbitohs have made an inconsistent start to their 2016 season, with just three wins from their opening eight games this year.
Despite their slow start to the season Burgess, who returned to the club following a stint in rugby union, says the camp still believe they can turn it around.
“It’s the NRL, it’s a tough comp. We’ve just got to continue doing what we do best – working hard at training, being accountable for our performance…we know we’ll turn it around,” Burgess told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“We’ve lost a few games. You can never predict what’s going to happen. Obviously you want to win every single game. In reality that’s not going to happen. We weren’t up to scratch against North Queensland and on the weekend [against Brisbane] I thought we gifted a few cheap tries.
“Otherwise I thought we were in the game for quite a large period of that game. We’ve just got to get back to focusing on the little things. The boys are all buying into it. We’re not beating ourselves up just yet. There is a long way to go.
“When people lose there is always crap that comes out. The reality is not much has changed in five years. Our attitude right now is ‘we’ve got to work hard’. We’ve got to work hard to get out of this losing streak.”
“We’ve just got to do a better job on the weekend. We demand high standards. But it’s still early. We’ve got plenty to keep working on and the boys are in good spirits.”
