    South Sydney star has huge decision on immediate playing future as he battles chronic shoulder injury

    South Sydney star Sam Burgess has a huge decision to make on his immediate playing future as he battles a chronic shoulder injury which could force him into early retirement

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    It's been revealed Burgess, who has pulled out of Great Britain's tour to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea due to the injury, has an arthritic shoulder and has just 25 per cent bone left in the area.

    The English powerhouse, largely considered the best forward of his generation, still has four years remaining on his contract with the Rabbitohs, who admit there are serious concerns about the injury.
