Sam Burgess’ AVO upheld as former South Sydney Rabbitohs player denies intimidating father-in-law


Former NRL star Sam Burgess has denied intimidating his father-in-law, whom he argued made “false allegations” against him following an alleged altercation between the pair last month.

Solicitor Bryan Wrench appeared on behalf of Burgess in Moss Vale Local Court on Wednesday over an AVO taken out on behalf of Mitchell Hooke, stating there was “no violence, no intimidation, no threats” during the alleged altercation at Mr Hooke’s home east of Bowral.

“He denied it at the time for police and he’s denied it today,” Mr Wrench said about his client.

Mr Burgess was allegedly involved in an incident with Mr Hooke on October 19, after the former Rabbitoh went to his father-in-law’s home to visit his children.
