Burgess brace not enough Joe [...].

Burgess brace not enough JOE BURGESS has grabbed a double in his NRL debut but it wasn't enough to save the Roosters going down 42-10 to South Sydney.

Burgess wasted little time in his first NRL match since arriving from Wigan, after being a late inclusion for the injured Daniel Tupou.

The winger scored two tries, the only points the Roosters could muster against an impressive Souths.

Burgess tweeted after the game: "Not the way I wanted my first game to go but was good to make my debut for the roosters! Onwards and upwards."

Sam Burgess' return to the NRL was a solid one with the Rabbitohs beating their bitter rivals by 32 points.

The England forward (pictured left) made an eye-catching 188 metres from 17 runs. It was Greg Inglis and half-back Adam Reynolds who did most of the damage for South Sydney.

But it could be a costly win for Souths with Reynolds suffering a broken jaw and John Sutton hurting his left pectoral muscle.
