England Fans Turn On "Coward" Sam Burgess After Decision To Quit Rugby Union

England Fans Turn On "Coward" Sam Burgess After Decision To Quit Rugby Union

Sam Burgess put an end to his short stint in Rugby Union earlier today when he announced that he'll be returning to play for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Australia's NRL.

It puts an end to his short career in Rugby Union where he was largely scapegoated for England's shocking performance.

Many have been sympathetic to "Slammin' Sam" saying he was treated poorly and never given a fair chance in union, whereas others have been quick to criticise the convert for quitting the sport so early and not giving it a fair crack at the whip.

Here's the best of the Twitter reaction.
