George Burgess Ruled out of Test Against New Zealand


South Sydney Rabbitoh George Burgess has been ruled out of the test series against the New Zealand Kiwis due to a hip injury.

“George needs surgery on his hip,” said England coach Steve McNamara

“It’s going to be a fairly long recovery period for him, about four months. George is devastated.

“He’s extremely proud about playing for England and it’s been a tough decision for him, but it’s one that he’s had to make because of the nature of the injury.

“He has to have it done for the rest of his career basically, otherwise he starts putting himself at risk of further injury.”
