There's one thing the Canberra Raiders have to thank Sam Burgess for - the recruitment of Elliott Whitehead. Whitehead paid tribute to the South Sydney enforcer following his retirement this week. If it wasn't for his debilitating shoulder injury, Burgess would be in the Great Britain camp with Whitehead preparing for the Test against New Zealand at Eden Park on Saturday. But he was at Bradford when Whitehead made his English Super League debut for the Bulls against Wakefield in 2009. Burgess joined the Rabbitohs the following year to begin his 182-game NRL career.
