Sam Burgess is regularly approached after Bath games by South Sydney Rabbitohs fans seeking an autograph for their jerseys - and Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has his own thoughts on why this is happening even in England.

"It's because the Bath shirt is kind of shitty!"

Burgess signed for rugby league side South Sydney Rabbitohs - co-owned by Crowe - in 2009 and his time in Australia culminated a first league title for the club in nearly half a century.

Burgess then switched codes and moved to the Aviva Premiership side. But the Gladiator star is clearly not impressed with Bath's shirt.

"It needs an essential redesign," Crowe added.

"As soon as I saw Sam wearing it I thought 'No, no, no - I should talk to those guys about their jersey'."

Perhaps Crowe would rather see them in Roman armour...
