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.”
