“AJ is one of the players who was there in ‘14 and an unbelievable try scorer,” Burgess said.

“He’ll always be a Rabbitohs great, but this is the nature of the sport.

“He wants to keep playing and doing his best, that’s all he can do really and he’s man enough to know that.”

Cook added: “I’m good mates with Alex and it’s a tough sport we play in.

“I’m close with AJ, and I’ve played a lot of games with him, so it will be a bit strange to see him play in a different jersey.”

St. George Illawarra Dragons eye Titans outcast Jarrod Wallace as Graham replacement

  St. George Illawarra Dragons eye Titans outcast Jarrod Wallace as Graham replacement The Dragons have reportedly earmarked Maroons front-rower Jarrod Wallace to potentially fill the void left by departed veteran forward James Graham. St. George Illawarra confirmed on Thursday Graham would be finishing his career in the Super League after the Englishman made a shock release request last week, enabling him to move back to boyhood club St. Helens. Dragons coach Paul McGregor said last week the club would be seeking a “like-for-like” player in exchange for Graham, with the Dragons confirming today they were yet to have signed a replacement.

Although they're friendly, Burgess won't be giving him any tips over the next few days as South Sydney prepare to play Canbterbury on Sunday.

"There’s not much I can do for him, he’ll get help from his club," Burgess said on Tuesday morning.

"I won’t help him in that respect, but if he wants me to show him around I can show him some cafes or whatever.

"We had chats last year about coming out to the nrl and he was all for it. It’s good to see he’s come out here now."

Thompson has been likened to former Rabbitohs forward Nathan Brown, with Burgess saying he'll fit in in the NRL.

"He’s a great player and a great athlete as well," he said.

"He’s going to do very well over here. He’s got a great work ethic and I think the game is going to suit his style of play. I’m looking forward to it.

"He’s got a great work rate and he’ll bring that into the middle. He's a hard runner and has good line speed. He’s a very well rounded player. You’ve seen that in England."
