England's Sam Burgess given time out by Bath to consider future in rugby union
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.
