Burgess brothers to remain with South Sydney

South Sydney Rabbitohs will relieved to hear that the Burgess apart from Sam are looking to stay in Australia for the long-term.

Every since Sam announced his departure at the end of the NRL season to English rugby union, the rumour mill has been rife with suggestion his brothers may follow him back to the Northern Hemisphere.

However, oldest brother Luke has told the Sydney Morning Herald that moving back doesn't appeal to the other brothers, as they pledge their future to the Rabbitohs.

Luke is signed with the Rabbitohs for another two seasons, and he admits that him and his family certainly see themselves in Sydney for at least another two years.

"It's crazy, as soon as one of my brother does something apparently we are all doing the same thing," Luke told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"It is not like that. We all make our own decisions and even the way we came to South Sydney, we all made our own decision and we will continue to do that.

"I will just see what happens over the next two years as to what follows on from that [contract] but I've got a family now and we have just managed to secure a property in Sydney so I am definitely thinking Sydney long term."

During round 25 in last season's NRL campaign the brothers made history. It was the first time that four brothers have taken to a rugby league field in 104 years, but now there won't be too many opportunities to do that again.

George Burgess has already been ruled out for the start of the season, and with Burgess set to be joining Bath after the completion of the NRL season, time is thin for the four Rabbitoh brothers.
