Sam Burgess with a broken cheekbone and eye socket after the 2014 Grand Final

England international Sam Burgess will finish his playing career in the National Rugby League with South Sydney Rabbitohs after signing a four-year extension to his contract.

Burgess, 29, has played 160 games for Souths in two spells and was a key part of their 2014 Grand Final success.

The former Bradford Bulls forward won the Clive Churchill Medal for man of the match, despite a broken cheekbone.

“I’m a Rabbitohs man. It’s as simple as that,” Burgess said.
