Sam Burgess announces retirement from rugby aged 30

Sam Burgess has announced his immediate retirement in a heartfelt letter to fans. The dual-code star, 30, has been forced to call time because of an infection in his shoulder following surgery.

He said: “I have loved absolutely every minute; the highs, the lows; the grand final; coming home; my injuries; my dates with the judiciary. It really has been a fantastic ride.

“This decision was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my life, however the decision was out of my hands essentially.

“I am no longer able to be myself day in, day out on the training field and consequently the playing field. “I will not be playing in the NRL next season. My time has come to an end. I’m excited for my next chapter in life whatever that may be.”
