England centre Sam Burgess has reportedly been given time off by Premiership club Bath to consider his future in rugby union as he ponders a return to rugby league.
Speculation has increased in Australia that the 26-year-old rugby league convert is going to return to his former NRL club, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, where his two brothers - Tom and George - have both signed contract extensions.
BBC Radio 5 Live's Alastair Eykyn claims Burgess is expected to make a decision on his future in the coming days.
