The End of the Affair

The confirmation that Sam Burgess has left Bath with immediate effect having agreed a deal to move back to League with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, brings an unsatisfactory end to this whole sorry saga.

It can be argued that, to an extent, he can hardly be blamed given the undeserved flak he has taken from all and sundry in relation to England’s Rugby World Cup debacle.

That said, the timing of his departure does make me wonder whether certain promises of a place in the England RWC squad were made to Burgess to entice him to Rugby Union in the first place and whether it was always his intention to cut and run following the tournament? Just saying.
