Brothers want NRL title

Aap
Monday, July 28, 2014

SYDNEY - South Sydney hardman George Burgess says he and his brothers are determined to take advantage of their last chance to win an NRL premiership together.

Sibling Sam will depart for English rugby union at the conclusion of the 2014 season, breaking up the quartet of Burgess brothers at Redfern.

George will remain at the Rabbitohs with Luke and Tom in 2015.

The 22-year-old said the narrowing window to win the comp alongside three family members was spurring him on.

"We want to make the most of it because it's (Sam's) last year but we also want to win for the team," he said.

"We want to win every year. It's not just because he's leaving.

"It is that bit of added incentive, but you'd take (a premiership) every day."

Burgess said the fourth-placed Rabbitohs would go into Monday's clash with Canberra wary of the 15th-placed Raiders.

On paper, the game seems a mismatch but George says they still have fresh in their minds their round-four clash in which the Raiders ambushed their more fancied rivals, winning 30-18.
