George Burgess suspended for tripping

South Sydney Rabbitohs front-rower George Burgess has picked up his second suspension of the season, after he was found guilty of tripping Penrith Panthers full-back Matt Moylan.

The England international, 21, submitted an early guilty plea and will miss one match – Friday’s mouth-watering clash with James Graham’s Canterbury Bulldogs. The ban comes less than a month after Burgess missed a match for a reckless high tackle on Wests Tigers’ James Tedesco.
