Tom Burgess to join brothers at Souths

South Sydney have added a fourth Burgess brother to their squad by signing Bradford rookie Tom Burgess on a one-year deal.

In addition, the Rabbitohs retained Tom’s older brother George Burgess, who made his club debut earlier this year, for a further two seasons.

Tom will join brothers Sam, Luke and George at Redfern next season.

“We’re really pleased to have secured the services of these two young front rowers,” Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire said.

“George has come a long way in my time with the Club and was making the most of his first grade opportunities until an unfortunate injury struck.

“He’s back training and is working hard to get back into shape and hopefully he can play a part in the remainder of our 2012 season.

“Thomas is another addition to our strong front row and will create further competition for spots which strengthens the Club as a whole.

“It’s very special to be able to bring the four brothers together here at the Rabbitohs.

“We value ourselves as a family-oriented Club and to have Sam, Luke, George and Thomas all with us next year is something very special for the Club and the game.”
