"He's in the same boat as Gareth Widdop. He could do what Gaz has done. He can really go on and do some great things," said Burgess, whose twin brother George is moving to Wigan.

"I'm really excited to see what he can do out here."

Souths play Canberra tomorrow (10.50am) for a place in the NRL Grand Final.
