NRL blocking Burgess contract at Bunnies

The NRL are so far refusing to register the contract of Sam Burgess at the Rabbitohs, saying the club needs to get rid of more players in order to fit the 2014 Clive Churchill Medallist under the salary cap.

Channel Seven are reporting that even after offloading Dylan Walker, the Bunnies need to free up more space in order to have Burgess' contract ratified.

It is believed Origin back-rower Chris McQueen will sign with either the Titans or Panthers in coming days.

It has been rumoured that Tim Grant could also be let go soon.
