Late Mail: Burgess cleared, Smith firms
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.”
