Former NRL star Sam Burgess is due to spend more time fronting a magistrate on May 4 after allegedly committing driving offences.
The 32-year-old was allegedly driving a BMW X5 when stopped on the Hume Highway south of Sydney today.
Police in a statement say Burgess was subjected to a random roadside drug test before being taken to Southern Highlands Police Station where he underwent a secondary oral fluid test.
The sample has been sent for further analysis.
The man was told to attend court for using an unregistered vehicle, and failing to obtain a NSW driver’s license after being in Australia for more than three months.
