Sam Burgess enjoys lunch with ex-cricketer Michael Vaughan and jokes about his retirement… after his fling with an American waitress
He was caught up in a whirlwind ‘four-day romance’ with an American waitress over the weekend.
But on Tuesday, Sam Burgess didn’t seem to have a care in the world as he enjoyed lunch with ex-cricketer Michael Vaughan in Coogee, Sydney.
Taking to Instagram, the 30-year-old footballer shared a snap alongside Michael and wrote: ‘Just two retired athletes.’

‘Great to catch up with a fellow Yorkie in Coogee,’ he captioned the post.
Sam was pictured in a grey T-shirt as he smiled for the camera, while his friend Michael sat across the table.
It comes after American waitress Oak Schuetz claimed she was ‘dating’ Sam after they had met at The Establishment bar in Sydney on Thursday.

She told The Daily Telegraph she had no idea who Sam was but they ‘hit it off’ and she stayed at his Coogee penthouse that night.
However, Oak later claimed that Sam – who separated from his wife, Phoebe Burgess, in October – had ‘ghosted’ her for going public with their relationship.
‘Sam and I aren’t talking anymore,’ she said on Monday afternoon, adding that the media coverage had ‘messed up’ their romance.

Oak said the retired Rabbitohs star had stopped returning her calls and she was unsure if he’d ever contact her again.
In a series of videos uploaded to Instagram later on Monday, the backpacker claimed she and Sam were ‘just friends’.
‘I’m single and Sam is single and it needs to be left at that because it just does. I just wanted to clear that up,’ she said.
