Such is the opinion of Cam Murray at South Sydney, the Rabbitohs will move Sam Burgess to the second row in 2019 to accommodate Murray in the starting side.
Bennett has been ultra impressed with Murray, who is expected to start the year in the No.13 jersey. It’s a move that will hopefully prolong Burgess’s career, shifting him to an edge and away from the heavy lifting in the middle.
Murray has a huge future both on and off the field, recently securing an Elite Athletic Scholarship with the Macquarie Foundation. He’s the first rugby league player to ever receive the honour. Among previous scholarship recipients are Wallabies players Ben McCalman and Rob Horne.
