Former England dual-code international Sam Burgess was convicted on Friday of intimidating his then wife’s father in an altercation in October 2019. A New South Wales state magistrate found the 32-year-old Burgess had yelled a threat in Mitchell Hooke’s face at Hooke’s property in Sydney.

“I’m confused with the decision, I will appeal the decision and I won’t say anything further,” Burgess said as he left the court.

In December 2015, Burgess married Phoebe Hooke and the couple had two children, a daughter and a son. The couple separated less than a month after their son was born in 2018.
