Rabbitohs prop forward, Thomas Burgess, is pleased to be back at home in England as his side prepare to take on St Helens in the World Club Challenge.
But while Burgess will be a fine resource for his teammates when it comes to showing them the UK ropes, for the international prop, it’s all about preparing for the match.
“We’re here to do a job,” said Burgess.
“We’re definitely here to concentrate on that first and foremost. Everyone’s in high spirits obviously with the Nines tournament – getting the win there. It’s just a really good feeling around the place.”
Burgess has been selected in a 20-man Rabbitohs touring squad that includes twin brother George.
The World Club Challenge match will be broadcast live on GEM from 6am on Monday 23rd (AEDT).
