during the round seven NRL match between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Canberra Raiders at Central Coast Stadium on April 21, 2018 in Gosford, Australia.

South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Sam Burgess could be suspended for the second time this season after a high-shot on Canberra Raiders halfback Aidan Sezer.

Burgess was only just returning from sitting two weeks on the sidelines after being charged with raising his elbow into Bulldog Josh Morris while being tackled.

The 59th-minute high shot on Sezer nearly sparked an all-in brawl, with both sides coming together in anger.

Burgess was placed on report and with two prior incidents already this year, another suspension seems likely.

Commentators of the match were of the opinion that the shot by Burgess was enough to warrant a send off but Burgess himself believed there wasn’t much in it.

Burgess told Fox Sports after the game: “I didn’t think there was anything in it.”
