George Burgess to go the Eels? No way

George Burgess to go the Eels? No way, say Souths

Off-contract at the end of the season, Burgess is rumoured to be the target of an Eels side hopeful of beefing up their pack.

There was some suggestion on Wednesday a move might be expedited to round one of this year, with the Eels having a significant chunk of their salary cap still at their disposal.

But the Rabbitohs have put paid to the idea, insisting there has been no request for a release and Burgess won't be going anywhere.
