Rabbitoh Burgess cleared at NRL judiciary

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 18/04/2017 Scott Bailey

South Sydney captain Sam Burgess has been cleared to play Brisbane on Friday night by the NRL judiciary.

Burgess had been cited with a grade-one shoulder charge on Canterbury's Greg Eastwood in the Rabbitohs' 24-9 loss on Good Friday.

However, Burgess successfully argued on Tuesday night that attacker Eastwood had generated the impact and that any contact was made with his chest, neck and jaw - not his shoulder or upper arm.
