Contract extension for Burgess

Luke Burgess has signed a two-year contract extension with South Sydney which will keep him at the Rabbitohs until the end of the 2015 season.

Former Leeds forward Burgess, 26, has made 28 appearances since joining younger brother Sam at the Rabbitohs from the Rhinos midway through the 2011 season and earned selection for the England squad last season.

He has since been joined at the Rabbitohs by 20-year-old twins Tom and George Burgess.

Souths have also re-signed his team-mates Chris McQueen and Kyle Turner for a further two years.

Rabbitohs head coach Michael Maguire said: "All three of these guys have been part of what we're building at the club and I'm looking forward to continuing to work with them at the Rabbitohs.

"They're all valuable members of the squad and good people and we're glad that we can reward them for their hard work and dedication with contract extensions."
