Sam Burgess parties with sex columnist Jana Hocking – the night after he battled ex-wife Phoebe’s father in court
Sam Burgess was seen partying with sex columnist Jana Hocking just hours after his appearance in court on Friday night, the claim claims.
According to Confidential, the former Rabbitohs star, 32, spent the evening in a trendy bar in Potts Point in Sydney when he crossed paths with the blonde radio personality, 36.
Despite having to face court all day long against his former father-in-law Mitchell Hooke via text messages revealing his nasty divorce from ex-wife Phoebe, Sam reportedly looked carefree and cheerful as he sat attentively with the glamazon talked.

The sportsman at the bar sat his lawyer Bryan Wrench, who was photographed on his phone while Sam was busy talking to Jana.
Jana, who works as a producer at Triple M and a dating columnist, previously dated NRL bad boy Todd Carney in 2011.
Last year, the blonde wrote an article Whimn about the many benefits of dating a divorced woman, advising women to ‘jump like a tiger on the nearest divorced man’ because they will know what they want the second time around.

The journalist urged singletons to remain optimistic and committed to the dating circuit because sooner or later they will meet someone who “ made all the mistakes in their first marriage and strives to do better in the next. ”
She also believes divorced women are better communicators and more traditional in their views than those who have never been married, which means they are less likely to ask you out – or dump you – by text message.
Meanwhile, Sam has recently divorced after legally ending his marriage to ex-wife Phoebe earlier this month.
Daily Mail Australia is not implying that the couple are more than friends at this stage.
