We’re Motivated by our Standards – Burgess

Rabbitohs forward, Sam Burgess, says that his team is motivated by the high standards that he and his teammates have set for themselves ahead of tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) clash against the Newcastle Knights at ANZ Stadium.

While Burgess admits that Newcastle are a dangerous outfit, the Englishman stressed that motivation will come from within the Rabbitohs ranks and not based on what they will be facing.

“They’re a dangerous team – everyone in the NRL is,” said Burgess.

“They’ve got some young guys who have got no fear, so it’ll be another exciting game for us, another good challenge. We’ll concentrate solely on our own performance.

“We get motivated by performing to our standard and it’ll be the same factor for us this weekend.”

Burgess will return to his favoured position of lock this week, after playing front row against the Roosters in Round 1. But despite the change, For Burgess, the differences are minimal.

“It’s very slight changes,” admitted Burgess.

“When I’m playing front row there’s obviously only one other front-rower, whereas when I’m playing lock I’ve got two others I can play around with and move around in situations in the game.

“It changes a little bit, but not so much to the naked eye.”

The Rabbitohs will wear limited edition Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice™ jerseys against the Knights.

The Batman and Superman logos – moulded together for the film – will take pride of place alongside the Rabbitohs logo on the Club’s traditional home strip on Saturday, as the men in Red and Green return to ANZ Stadium for their first home game of the new season.
