Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess fronted the rugby league media this morning (Saturday) following his sides round 10 loss to the Melbourne Storm at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

Burgess stressed that his team is working hard to put their performance right in what has proven to be a challenging competition so far in 2014.

"It's tough. you know the competition's really hard," said Burgess.

"As a team we're working extremely hard to string together some wins, but it's a challenge every week.

"I thought Melbourne last night were very good - we were on the back foot for the whole game. They capitalised on our mistakes, we made some uncharacteristic errors at crucial times. The try before half-time really hurt us.

"We've got a long turn-around now and we need to prepare very well."
