South Sydney prop George Burgess is beaten by Johnathon Thurston who believes he needs a huge ban for a & # 39; disgusting & # 39; eye-guts on another player.

Burgess was deployed early in the first half of the game on the Wests Tigers at Bankwest Stadium, after stabbing his fingers in the eyes of Robbie Farah during a tackle.

The sloppy match ended in a 14-9 win for the Tigers.

In Channel 9 & # 39; s post match coverage, panelists including Andrew Johns, Johnathon Thurston and Paul & # 39; Fatty & # 39; Vautin were not impressed by Burgess's Gute campaigns.

& # 39; In the Wild West days, if someone were to notice, you would get 12-18 months for it, & # 39; said Johns.

& # 39; If they are consistent, he will get five weeks. & # 39;

But Thurston said this wasn't enough: & # 39; They should throw the book at him. & # 39;

While the images were playing, Vautin remarked: & he is going fast, losing half of his index finger! & # 39;

It is the second time in eight months that Burgess has landed in hot water for an instant, after being found guilty of the act while playing for England at the end of last year.

The English star was suspended for four NRL games, which resulted in a 50 percent tax on the punishment he signed this time.

& # 39; Imagine George being told what would happen, & # 39; Vautin continued. & # 39; He would blow up deluxe. & # 39;

& # 39; That's disgraceful. You can not do that. & # 39;

& # 39; He will tackle it. & # 39;

Thurston wasn't ready yet. & # 39; Gushing and biting, two of the lowest acts in the Rugby League, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; If they keep someone from doing it again, they should throw the book at him. & # 39;

& # 39; It is a low deed. & # 39;

The channel 9 panel was not the only one to condemn Burgess campaigns 2 GB radio host Ray Hadley has his say on the issue.

& # 39; In the time I was involved with Rugby League, there are two things that most people detest. One gouge and the other bites, & Hadley said.

& # 39; Gushing must be wiped out of the game. You are talking about a person's eyesight. & # 39;

& # 39; Michael Cronin lost his eyesight in an accident with a teammate, to think that someone was reckless is really extremely worrying. & # 39;

Burgess was referred directly to the NRL judiciary for the incident with the competition assessment committee that charged him with dangerous contact.

It's not the first gushing incident this season, with Canberra forward Hudson Young being rubbed out for five weeks for a class-three eye guts on Aiden Tolman, as well as North Queensland firebrand Josh McGuire, who has escaped twice with a fine for opposite behavior for facials on Cameron Munster and Dylan Walker.

The NRL was forced to defend its decision not to accuse McGuire more seriously, because both victims had not submitted complaints.

As Farah stood up and claimed that Burgess's fingers came in contact with his eyes, the Englishman will probably get an answer himself.
