BBC Sport - Sam Burgess: Bath signing talks injury and England

Burgess talks injury, Bath & England

In an extended interview with BBC sports editor Dan Roan, Bath's Sam Burgess says he has set his sights on playing for England at the World Cup next year.

However, Burgess, who left Australian rugby league side South Sydney Rabbitohs to sign for Bath on a three-year deal, says he needs to establish himself in the English Premiership first.

Burgess is unlikely to make his union debut for the Aviva Premiership club until December as he is recovering from surgery on the cheekbone he fractured in the first minute of the NRL Grand Final on 5 October.
