Burgess in defence of big brother
RABBITOHS forward Tom Burgess revealed his brother Sam’s stiff upper lip defied the sexting probe he is at the centre of when he took to the turf to take on the Dragons in the club’s much-anticipated sudden death finals clash.
Rallying to his married older sibling’s defence after it was revealed the premiership star’s verified social media accounts were used in video chats that sparked a young woman’s complaints about lewd behaviour, Tom said: “He (Sam) is all right and got on with the job.”
Burgess’s heavily pregnant wife Phoebe was a no-show for her scheduled appearance at Randwick on Saturday. SPORT P56
