Rabbitohs lock Sam Burgess fronted the rugby league media today (Wednesday) ahead of Monday night’s round 11 match against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

Burgess said the inclusion of Nathan Merritt in this week's side will do much for the Rabbitohs side, after losing Greg Inglis to Queensland camp.

"It's good to get Nathan back in the team," said Burgess.

"I suppose he's not too bad a replacement, so I'm looking forward to that (playing with Merritt). He's been out of the side the last couple of weeks but he's certainly been working hard.

"The guys are excited for him to be back in the squad and I'm sure he'll do a good job for us."
