The annoucement made by Coach Steve McNamara about the official national england rugby formation for that year The Rugby World Cup which consisted of 24 rugby players had taken many rugby fans aback. The most special thing in that year formation was that there had been 3 siblings of the Burgess, not to mention the oldest brother being crossed out of this precious list at the very last moment.
3 siblings of The Dewsburry whose names were listed on the National England rugby team included Sam Burgess (24 years old), who came back after 3 years of being impermanently retired, and the twin George – Tom Burgess (21 years old). The oldest brother Luke Burgess (26 years old) whose name had just been crossed out at the very last minute.
Despite the fact that having 3 sons impressively being chosen to be in the list of the National England rugby team, however, Mrs Julie who is their mom still revealed to feel depressed. Via BBC, Mrs Luke said: “It was quite disappointing when the list missed out Luke. He must be really upset as all of his brothers succeed to have their names on the precious list of the nation.”
Coach Steve McNamara revealed that that would be a fairy tale if four of the Burgess siblings had been chosen to be on this list. However, Mr. McNamara claimed that his main mission is to choose the best 24 players. He said: “Luke will definitely be disappointed, however, I thought that he would be happy if 3 other brothers got their names on the list.”
At this present, 4 of the Burgess siblings are competing for the Rugby South Sydney Rabbitohs of the renowned Russell Crowe. At the beginning of 2013. Luke, Sam, George and Tom together played for the South Sydney Rabbitohs family and became the first 4 siblings who made history throughout the last 100 years.
That was only the third time in the history of Rugby tournaments taking place in Australia which had 4 England players playing in one team.
