The full extent of George Burgess’s out-of-control betting can be revealed as the troubled star continues to seek treatment for gambling addiction.

Sources close to the 30-year-old say he ‘got lost’ betting on horses and greyhounds in recent years and in the process has dropped ‘hundreds of thousands’ of dollars.

Burgess has been reeling from injury problems and insecurity surrounding his playing future at the St George Illawarra Dragons as he faces the results of his problems with gambling.

It is understood Burgess, who has three young children with his model wife Joanna, 우리카지노 was even forced to borrow money from family members to make ends meet.  

Finally, he checked himself into a rehabilitation facility which specialises in addiction where sources said he was ‘doing really well’ and was expected to leave soon.

Burgess was once one of the NRL’s best props and was earning $800,000.He played at South Sydney with older brothers Sam and Luke and twin George and won a premiership in 2014 

George is one of four Burgess brothers to have played NRL along with older siblings Sam and Luke and twin Tom. For a time, all four played together at South Sydney.

He had long been a keen gambler – particularly on horses and 카지노사이트 dogs – and found it easier to bet big in Australia than in his native Great Britain. 

Sources say George’s gambling was still a relatively ‘harmless’ habit while playing a short stint in Britain with Super League in 2020 following his departure from Souths a year earlier.

Flattened in a brutal tackle during Wigan’s season opener, Burgess would play just nine matches as he grappled with a serious hip injury that ultimately required surgery.

It is believed it was during Burgess’s extended time on the sidelines, as he missed the thrill of competition and routine of training, that his gambling increased. 

The hip procedure Burgess underwent is one from which league players rarely make a full recovery.

Burgess is the only player in the history of the NRL who has returned to playing high-level football following such an operation.

Things started to look up in late 2021 when it was announced Burgess would be returning to the NRL this year having been offered a two-year contract by St George Illawarra.

Burgess’s contract with the Dragons is reportedly worth $120,000 to $150,000, whereas at his peak he was earning $800,000 a year.
