England's George Burgess police four matches for the kiwi captain 1 NEWS NOW


George Burgess will miss South Sydney's opening three matches of the NRL season after leaving a four match ban on eye shoveling.

England ahead was guilty of an eye on Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in his test victory over New Zealand this weekend.

The event, which occurred 20 minutes from the end of England's 20-14 victory, was unpunished by Judges Gerard Sutton and Watene-Zelezniak brushed off the clashes in his post-match interviews.

However, the Rugby Football League announced Monday that New Zealand referred to the event and Burgess was referred to a disciplinary hearing.

Rabbitoh was also fining NZ $ 980, but has the opportunity to appeal.

Kiwi and Penrith fullback Watene-Zelezniak must be treated for damage, shortly after coming into contact with the land with Burgess.

Burgess will miss missing Sunday's third Test against Kiwis before serving his NRL ban.

The suspension is a major blow to Souths, who faces defenders premiere Sydney Roosters in the opening round before a clash with the traditionally fast St George Illawarra at Kogarah.

Rabbitohs is already facing an uncertain start of his pre-season with speculation continues to mount that Anthony Seibold and Wayne Bennett's coaching change will come within a few weeks.
