Retired NRL star Sam Burgess enjoyed the ultimate family reunion on Sunday. 

Sam, who finalised his divorce from Phoebe Burgess in 2020, shared a photo to Instagram of himself bonding with their children, daughter Poppy, four, and son Billy two, along with his mother Julie Burgess and his brothers and their partners. 

The 32-year-old revealed in the post's caption that the reunion was well overdue, with it being the 'first time in over two years'.

In the family photo, a casually dressed Sam huddled around the couch and was joined by mother Julie, and brothers George, Tom and Luke Burgess.

The wives and girlfriends were also present, including Luke's partner Tori May, Tom's fiancée Tahlia Giumelli, George's wife Joanna Burgess, and their children.

'Sundays done right. First time in over two years all together. 1 great grandmother. 1 grandmother. 8 great/grandkids. 4 Broskis (sic) and 3 partners in crime. HOW GOOD,' Sam captioned the post.

Sam and Pheobe, 32, were married for four years before their acrimonious split in October 2019.    

Phoebe recently broke down in tears during a podcast interview as she recalled the devastating moment she discovered her then-husband, Sam, had cheated on her with a woman in Melbourne in 2017. 

She became emotional as she discussed Sam's infidelity on Mia Freedman's No Filter podcast.

Phoebe told host Mia she'd discovered her husband's affair after he confessed to her he was being investigated by his club over a 'sexting' scandal in 2018. He was later cleared of any involvement in the 'sexting' matter.

'I was the ultimate defender of my husband,' she said. 'I believed that he'd been made a victim.

'And then came the night where the next woman had decided she was going to tell the next story as well, that my husband had had an affair while he was captaining England in 2017, while I was travelling around the country with our daughter to watch his games.'

Through tears, she added: 'And that night, that night broke me.'
