Burgess has just been unlucky. He is a fantastic player and any club would be lucky to have him. Even if he still played 2/3 the season, you would expect 18 games of hard playing and dedication/inspiration from the forwards.

Yeah but he hasnt been playing anywhere near 18 games a season .

First season he pretty much played every game, may have missed a couple but played at least 20 of the 24 games. Last season he had injury issues and played about 4 or 5. This season, and if you assume he'll miss 5 weeks will only have missed 11 games so far.

Injuries can happen, and reoccur, but you can get a good run with them afterall. Look at Ben Ross now. He was the only Souths prop to play all games last season. If you could have bet on that, you'd have got 1000/1 odds at the start of the season.

Im liking Scums chances of beating the Donkeys this week.

Might do a 2 or 3 leg multi and up the ante to 50 bux.

The door won't hit Gallop on the way out...Because of the prosperity he has help bring to the organization and the sport, it's only the latest in sliding doors up in there.

Long after the haters have died out he will be remembered for the positive things he done for the sport...People just don't warm to him because he is a speccy lawyer looking cunt and they wan't meat head former players to run things...just does't work.

Currently in his 3rd season. I'm pretty sure he'll be resigned though.

It is.
Considering the guy was told not to play again after having a few very serious neck injuries, and it was his first game (round 1) for years, to play every game and Geddes, Asotasi, Stuart all suffered season ending injuries, defies belief.

Geddes is another one who has had awful luck with injuries. So many season ending injuries early into the season, and this year he would be on the sidelines too but he's on his last year of his contract and is playing with a busted bicep.

Yeah, I guess he is the sort of player that clubs would be willing to take risks with because he is that good, Still not as good as Gareth Ellis though

Oh its a real shame. Glad he is out of the game now they can find someone that actually loves the game and not his own ego.
