Sam Burgess has left Bath with immediate effect in order to return to his former RL club, the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
After weeks of speculation on his future - it has been confirmed that the 26-year-old will return to League just one year into his Rugby Union career at Bath.
BBC Sport appear to be the first to call it, with the rest following suit. Twitter is already kicking off at the news:
Sad to see @SamBurgess8 leave union. If he hadn't had to live in the shadow of Big Gav it could've been so different pic.twitter.com/YFt0Ac6y2L— Super Gavin Henson (@UnrealGavHenson) November 5, 2015
Really disappointed in Sam Burgess. Given the world on a plate and still walked away. Got to feel for the boys who he was picked ahead of.— Rugby Withdrawal™ (@RichC_K) November 5, 2015
Thanks for the loot - I'm outta here. #SamBurgess Not that keen on proving himself then? Disappointing. pic.twitter.com/PZxiDt5JUW— Stevie Jay (@ScorpioRising_) November 5, 2015
