Rabbitohs, Broncos sweat on Burgess, Gillett salary cap relief


The Rabbitohs and Broncos are sweating on the medical retirements of Sam Burgess and Matt Gillett, respectively, as the two clubs try to free up cash to replace the pair.

Gillett joined Burgess as the latest stalwart to retire from the NRL, announcing his career was over at an emotional press conference on Thursday.

Brisbane have already applied for the former Kangaroos and Queensland Origin star to be medically retired, following Souths’ lead.

The Rabbitohs made contact with the NRL well before announcing Burgess’ official retirement on Wednesday, applying for salary cap compensation.
