Sam Burgess has taken aim at George Ford and Jamie Roberts again with his latest rant about his stint in rugby union.
The former Bath man headed back to rugby league after England failed to make the knockout stages of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, and took aim at Ford and his Dad Mike.
“We play Wales the next week and he starts me at inside centre,” he said, speaking about his World Cup experiences.
“They have Jamie Roberts who’s [supposedly] some big guy, but he’s just like a normal NRL player.
“He’s supposed to be this big fierce runner, but he wasn’t interested in contact. I think I hit him a couple of times in the game, I don’t remember him so much.
“We played the game I didn’t do a great deal. It was just a normal game of footie. We were leading by 10 and they took me off with 20 minutes to go.
“They bring George Ford on and Jamie Roberts starts running over him and we lose by three. And that was it. So much goes into that. At the end of the day my face didn’t fit.
“Of course I made a few errors in the game but we were leading by 10. I’m sure there were players who played the game their whole lives and made errors in the game.
“It’s one of those things, the press had an agenda or other people had huge agendas.”
