Sam Burgess will play despite a rib injury.

SOUTH Sydney captain Sam Burgess has been cleared to take on the Raiders on Saturday despite a rib cartilage injury.

“He’s done some light training this week but I think most players at some stage get a bit of a rib injury and he’s no different,” coach Michael Maguire told reporters in Sydney on Thursday.

“Sam’s tough and like all the forwards they get back out there.”

In other late mail:

* Cameron Smith (pectoral) has completed some training for the Storm and is firming to play;

* Bryce Cartwright (knee) makes a long-awaited comeback for the Panthers;

* Brett Morris (knee) is expected to miss out for the Bulldogs;

* Antonio Winterstein (calf) and Shaun Fensom (ribs) are both expected to play for the Cowboys.
