Sam Burgess shoulder injury update

Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess has had surgery this week to repair damage to his shoulder suffered in England’s Four Nations clash with Papua New Guinea in November.

Burgess’ shoulder was not healing as quickly as expected, so he went in for shoulder surgery yesterday to repair the damage.

Burgess will commence rehabilitation training in four weeks and will be available to start the 2011 season for the Rabbitohs.
