Sam Burgess is set to undergo surgery on his injured shoulder

Sam Burgess has been ruled out of the Great Britain tour to New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

The 30-year-old suffered a recurrence of a shoulder injury in his club’s NRL semi-final defeat to Canberra Raiders last month and is set to undergo surgery.

The loss of Burgess, who made his Great Britain debut as an 18-year-old against the Kiwis in 2007, is a major blow for Wayne Bennett’s team as they prepare to embark on the first Lions tour for 23 years.
