George Burgess says that there’s plenty of hard work ahead for his Rabbitohs outfit following Friday night’s confidence-building victory over the Sea Eagles by 20-8 at ANZ Stadium.

The English international, while proud of the victory, acknowledged that his team is still far from where they would like to be.

“It was good to get the two points,” said Burgess.

“But definitely we’ve got a lot of work to do internally during the week at training to get to where we want to be I think.”

After starting matches from the bench in recent weeks, George was back in Michael Maguire’s starting line-up when the final team was announced an hour before kick-off on Friday – and justifiably so.

Burgess was heavily involved, making 170 metres with the ball in hand  - more than any other on the field – while also topping the tackle count with Issac Luke (40 tackles) and six tackle breaks.

“I was back to doing some good things last night – getting the team forward and my defence was ok – I feel like I’m building.”
