• England face New Zealand at Mile High Stadium
• Burgess calls on England to do the sport justice in America
Sam Burgess urged his England teammates to “do the sport justice” when they face New Zealand on Saturday in a Denver showcase for international rugby league.
Burgess and several NRL-based teammates took a public stance to support the game going ahead after Australian clubs raised concerns over player welfare and the match being played at high altitude. With a World Cup in the US seven years away, Burgess says the players must ensure the game delivers on all levels.
