George & Thomas Burgess Named for England
Rabbitohs prop forwards, George and Thomas Burgess, have both been named in an unchanged England side to take on New Zealand in Dunedin this Saturday.
George Burgess will start in the front row partnering Bulldogs prop James Graham, while Thomas will come off the bench wearing jumper number 16.
England will be hoping to win by 10 points or more to ensure their place in the final on November 15. A win by a smaller margin would still have them below New Zealand on the ladder, meaning they would need Australia to lose to Samoa or fail to make up the points difference.
Congratulations to both George and Thomas on their selection.
