Burgess Judiciary Charge from Round One, 2013

Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess has been hit with a grade one careless high tackle charge for a tackle on Roosters halfback Mitchell Pearce in the 57th minute of last night's resounding victory over the Sydney Roosters.


An early guilty plea will result in 138 points, meaning Burgess will miss one match.


If he fights the charge and loses he will attract 170 points, meaning he will miss one match.


If he fights the charge and wins he will be free to play against the Sharks on Monday-week.
