Burgess out of All Stars match

SOUTH Sydney forward Sam Burgess has been ruled out of next month's NRL All Stars match.

The Rabbitohs don't think he has recovered sufficiently from an ankle injury.

Burgess endured a torrid 2011 campaign, injuring his shoulder in the season opener and then sustaining a season-ending ankle injury that required surgery in May.

New coach Michael Maguire has ordered him to withdraw from voting for the team that will face the Indigenous All Stars on the Gold Coast.
