ON THE RUSH HOUR WITH MG

LISTEN | MG Believes George Burgess Made A Big Mistake Rejecting The Eels' Monster Contract AAP

MG believes George Burgess not taking the monster $1.4 million deal on offer from the Parramatta Eels is a massive mistake. 

Speaking on The Rush Hour with MG, Geyer called it "absurd" that the 26-year-old would turn down that type of money at this stage in his career, given he is off-contract at the end of this season. 

LISTEN:

Speculation suggested the Eels were set to land Burgess ahead of round one, however, the Rabbitohs put that suggestion to bed late on Wednesday afternoon. 

"George Burgess is contracted to the South Sydney Rabbitohs until the end of the 2019 season and will be playing for (Souths) throughout the 2019 season," the club said in a statement.

"Neither George Burgess nor his management have requested a release from the remainder of his contract and

"George has indicated that he wants to play for the Rabbitohs in 2019."
