Sam Burgess hoping for resolution to investigation within next few days

Sam Burgess is hoping for the outcome of an NRL investigation into sexting allegations within the next 48 hours.

Allegations were made against the England international of improper conduct from a social media account last Friday and Burgess said his main concern through the investigation was for his family.

Burgess’ wife Phoebe and their two-year-old daughter Poppy, have been forced to leave Sydney to escape paparazzi camped outside their home.

When facing the media for the first time since the allegations, Burgess said: “I am happy for them to get to the truth, I really am.

“I just want to protect my family in this whole thing. I have got a wife, I have got a daughter, my wife is heavily pregnant so I just want them to be safe and happy but with my current situation at home there is no chance of that.

“It’s been a tough process to go through together, but fortunately I’ve got a strong wife, a wife who loves me, I’ve got great family, great friends, great support around me.

“I am glad that I am stood here today, I am glad that I have a chance to address it and speak to you guys so that you understand where I am at.

“I am not running away and hiding from what is out there. I am telling you that there is an inquiry going on and it is coming to a close, hopefully in the next 24 to 48 hours.”
