Former Rugby Football Union director of professional rugby Rob Andrew has continued his critisisim of ex-England centre Sam Burgess today on BBC Breakfast.
Burgess, who had never played union before joining Bath in October 2014, was controversially fast-tracked into the England squad less than a year after switching codes.
When England failed to reach the quarter-finals in their home World Cup, Burgess, playing at centre, was made one of the primary scapegoats, with Andrew being highly critical of him in his new book.
But after Andrew continued his critisism on live TV, the rugby league convert has called him out on Twitter, insisting Andrew speak to him man-to-man.
I think Rob Andrew should pick up the phone and call me.

Ex-England and Harlequins speedster Ugo Monye was one of the well known figures to reply to Burgess’ tweet.
