Maguire allays Burgess fears

The 27-year-old suffered a neck injury in the 52nd minute of the Bunnies' 8-6 defeat to St. George Ilawarra and after receiving treatment on the field, was taken to hospital in a brace.

However, speaking after the game, Maguire confirmed that Burgess could move his limbs following the collision and is confident he will be able to return to the field in the foreseeable future.

"At the moment he's gone for scans. The doctor was pretty positive, which is good news," Maguire told media after the game. "He obviously had a bit of tingling through one arm.

"They go through all the processes when you have an incident like that, but from what I've been told they were pretty positive when they put him in the ambulance so we'll wait and see about the scans.

"Sammy was in a pretty good headspace from what I was told, so I'm looking forward to having a chat with him and seeing where he's at."
