George Burgess playing for England during the 20-14 second Test win over New Zealand

England forward George Burgess will miss the final New Zealand Test after being found guilty of eye-gouging.

Burgess, 26, has been suspended for four matches for the incident during England’s series-clinching win on Sunday.

An international panel found he had unlawfully come into contact with Kiwis full-back Dallin Watene-Zelezniak’s eye late in the game.

South Sydney prop Burgess was also fined £500 in the disciplinary hearing.
