SAS Australia directing staffer Jason Fox takes a SAVAGE swipe at Sam Burgess over the ‘shape and size’ of his head


He’s one of the toughest frontrunners on this season of SAS Australia.

But on Tuesday, Sam Burgess was savagely trolled by one of the show’s own directing staff (DS) on Instagram, in a light-hearted comment that even his older brother Luke couldn’t help but giggle at.

Sam, 32, had shared a picture of himself on the course captioned: ‘Leadership… It comes in all shapes and sizes.

‘My take. Do, and you may ask to do. Listen whole heartedly, feel with your heart, protect with your life. Most of all – get the job done!’

While a poignant message, DS Fox couldn’t resist but take a jab at the retired NRL star – commenting underneath: ‘I’ll tell you what else comes in all shapes and sizes… #noggin.’

Luke, 34, was quick to reply to the Foxy’s jab – writing three crying with laughter emojis in the comments section.

The post was also liked by Sam’s younger brother Tom, 29.

It’s not the first time the DS have taken a cheeky swipe at Sam.

During the first episode of the series chief instructor Ant Middleton asked the athlete: ‘What the f**k has happened to your head?’

With a smile, Sam responded: ‘Played sport for… 14, 15 years. Rugby League, pretty physical game so, took a few knocks.’

Sam made headlines following the season premiere of SAS Australia, after making the surprise revelation he cheated on his ex-wife of four years, Phoebe Burgess, when they were married.

‘I don’t think I was the greatest husband at times,’ he said to the camera. ‘I embarrassed my wife. I’d had an affair with a girl, a woman in Melbourne. That’s true.

‘I was away on tour, and regretfully that happened. Which would have been… it would have been a tough place for Phoebe to be.’

On Tuesday, the British sportsman described his SAS Australia experience as ‘intense from the first minute to the last minute’, and admitted there were times he ‘genuinely believed it was too much, but pushed through’.

When asked what was the worst part of Seven’s military-style show, Sam said it was ‘definitely the lack of food, and cleaning the toilets’.

The former South Sydney Rabbitohs player also revealed he prepared for SAS Australia by doing ‘general training’ and weekly 48-hour fasts for a month.

Describing it as a learning experience, he added: ‘I just think I took a deeper look at my capabilities and understanding of others and other people’s capabilities. It was a great period of growth.’

SAS Australia continues Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel Seven
