Despite rumours in Australia surfacing stating he has signed a three year deal with Wigan for next season, South Sydney forward George Burgess has avoided addressing the topic.

The 27 year old international is out of contract at the end of the season and has been told by Souths he won’t be given a new deal, with the Warriors now rumoured to have secured his signature.

However, the big front rower would not speak on the subject when asked in Australia, despite Warriors boss Adrian Lam admitting the club had held talks with his representatives.
