Sam Burgess is embracing the single life following his split from wife Phoebe Burgess last year. 

The former Rabbitohs star, 31, was seen getting flirty with Bridgette Lee – the sister of Braith Anasta’s fiancée Rachael Lee – at popular Sydney watering hole Coogee Pavilion on Sunday night. 

Bridgette and Sam were attending a birthday party for Braith and Rachael’s two-year-old daughter Gigi.

The footballer appeared in high spirits while enjoying a drink with the young woman, who draped her arm around the handsome sportsman. 

Sam and the brunette were spotted enjoying a moment alone in the busy bar. 

Standing away from other revellers, the newly single star couldn’t take his eyes off the stunner as she lapped up the attention. 

At one stage, she wrapped an arm around his neck and whispered something in his ear while he smiled and sipped his drink.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to both Sam and Bridgette for comment. 

On Monday, Bridgette took to Instagram to share a photo taken at the same Coogee hot spot, and added a caption referring to the toddler’s birthday. 

Alongside a photo in which the brunette beauty sat on a bench with a friend, she wrote: ‘Oh heyyy ….. Gigi’s Birthday’ and tagged the Coogee Bay Hotel as a location. 

Bridgette appears to be wearing the same outfit she was seen in when chatting to Sam, making it likely that the photo posted Monday was actually taken on Sunday.

Rachael also took to Instagram to share a snap from the party, showing Sam with Braith’s son Addison, eight, which showed Bridgette in the background.

The beauty therapist was last linked to Married At First Sight star Nic Jovanovic in November. 

On November 17, Nic, who was originally paired with Cyrell Paule in the experiment, was seen leaving the wedding of Cameron Merchant and Jules Robinson in Sydney’s CBD with Bridgette on his arm. 

Shortly after, the pair went ‘Instagram official’ sharing footage from what appeared to be a date to Bridgette’s Instagram Stories.

However, neither Nic nor Bridgette have shared any photos of one another since then and both appear to be single.  

It comes after the NRL star was spotted enjoying another cosy chat with a different brunette at the Coogee Bay Hotel on January 11.

The pair sold their former marital home, a French provincial-style four bedroom property in Maroubra, for $5million on December 24. 

Since splitting, Phoebe was staying at her parents’ country home in Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. 

She fled the property during the recent bushfire crisis.

Meanwhile, Sam is believed to be renting in Coogee.
