Concussed Sam Burgess Delivers Half-Time Speech Against Roosters

Watch the video.

Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess suffered a concussion during the first half against the Roosters last night.

He was taken from the field, but that didn't stop him delivering a fiery address to his troops in the sheds at halftime. The footage was captured by Fox Sports. Watch the video above.

Burgess was the victim of an awkward bump and was taken from the field once the club doctor saw footage of the incident.

Despite the contact occurring before halftime and the advantage of the half-time break to recover, Burgess failed the concussion test and did not return.

This comes after a week of headlines for the NRL regarding the handling of concussion, with three clubs being fined for failing to take their players from the field.
