Burgess follows brother to Sydney

South Sydney have added a second British Burgess to their squad by signing Sam's younger brother, George, from Bradford on a two-year contract. The 18-year-old prop has yet to make his first-team debut, but played for the England Academy side that beat the Australian Schoolboys twice this month.

"George informed us that he would like the opportunity to play with Sam at South Sydney and we were able to negotiate his release with the Rabbitohs," said Bradford's football manager, Stuart Duffy.

The Bulls have negotiated a right of first refusal if George returns to Britain.
