Burgess will attract 142 points with an early guilty plea or 190 points if he fights the charge and is found guilty. The base penalty for the charge is 100 points but Burgess receives 90% loading for one previous similar charge in the last two years and two non-similar charges in the past two years.


No decision has been made about how he will plead at this stage.


The tackle occurred in the 35th minute on Andrew Fifita.
