Why has he given up on RL ? Could he not have asked to go out on loan, and see if any Super league clubs were interested. I never saw him play, so not sure if he would be an asset, but he's a big lad for a back.

Money, I'd imagine.

Which RL club is going to pay an unproven player the wages he could demand as a former international in RU?

You have to remember that Wire had a salary cap dispensation for Burrell. I don't think if he moved to another RL club that would apply, so, overall, he would be a huge financial gamble for any RL side.
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

I'm not sure what English RU side have a vacancy for him.
He may well head to France.

A few players seem to be heading to the USA at the moment. Might see him turn up there.

I read today that he's joining Newcastle Falcons RU, who have been promoted back to the Premiership.
