Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess has been charged by the Match Review Committee for grade one tripping arising from last night’s victory over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

The incident happened in the 47th minute of play on the Bulldogs’ Aiden Tolman.

The base penalty for the charge is 75 points. Burgess has 20% loading due to a prior non-similar offence as well as 55 carry over points.

Should he take the early guilty plea he will accrue 122 points, meaning a one match suspension and 22 carry over points.

Should he fight the charge and lose he will accrue 145 points, meaning a one match suspension and 45 carry over points.

Should he fight the charge and win he will receive no suspension and keep his existing 55 carry over points.

Any suspension is likely to be served in the end-of-season international matches being played by England, should he be selected in the England squad for the Four Nations, including a Test match against France prior to the Four Nations tournament.

Keep an eye on for further updates.
