In joining Bath Rugby, Sam Burgess represents arguably the most high-profile cross-code move in rugby history. One of the biggest names in rugby league, Burgess played for Bradford Bulls in the Super League before joining the famous South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NRL.

A Great Britain and England Rugby League international (for whom he scored eight tries in 15 appearances), he played a starring role for his country in the 2013 World Cup, where his bullocking runs and clever offloading marked him out as a true talent on the global stage.  

Although Burgess played as a forward in rugby league, Bath Rugby will decide where best to utilise his skills once he has settled in at the Club.
