Let’s Talk About Thomas Burgess

Tom's England selection came off the back of a 2017 season where he played 91.67% of Rabbitohs matches and averaged 118.45 run metres per game.

While his attacking stats in 2017 are good to look at with an average of 1.5 tackle breaks per game combined with 48.64 post-contact metres per game, it's his defensive numbers that really shine through.

Averaging over 25 tackles a game Tom’s work ethic is clearly on display when reviewing his defensive stats.

Missing under just three tackles a match Tom Burgess also improved his discipline - giving away just seven penalties throughout the 2017 season.
