The England forward George Burgess will miss the final rugby league Test against New Zealand after being found guilty of eye gouging.
According to Radionz, Burgess has been suspended for four matches due to the incident during England’s series-clinching win last weekend.
An international panel found he had unlawfully come into contact with Kiwis full-back’s eye late in the game.
The South Sydney prop was also fined 980 dollars at the disciplinary hearing.
The suspension means he will miss South’s first three games in next year’s NRL competition.
