Judiciary Update: Burgess And Musgrove Take Early Guilty Plea
Rabbitohs forwards Sam Burgess and Zane Musgrove have both taken an early guilty plea on their respective charges from our Round 25 clash with the Melbourne Storm.
Musgrove was charged with a Grade One Shoulder Charge from an incident in the 56th minute involving Jordan McLean. The early guilty plea means he will accrue 150 points and miss our clash against Parramatta Eels on Friday at ANZ Stadium.
Burgess was charged with High Tackle (Careless) by the Match Review Committee after an incident in the 68th minute involving Dale Finucane. Due to a prior non-similar offence Burgess accrued a 20% loading on the charge. The early guilty plea means he will incur a fine of $1,350.
Burgess will be available for selection for this Friday's clash with the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium.
