Charged! Melbourne’s Will Chambers, South Sydney’s Sam Burgess facing suspensions

In the aftermath of a heated Good Friday of NRL action, Chambers and Burgess were both charged with dangerous contract by the match review committee.

Chambers was cited for a grapple tackle on Paul Gallen at the conclusion of Cronulla’s upset win over the premiers.

Burgess could return for last eight

South Sydney Rabbitohs star Burgess was forced off in the first half of England's 18-4 loss to holders and co-hosts Australia in Melbourne on Friday.

It was feared the 28-year-old would be ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.

But Burgess has now been examined by a knee specialist, prompting England's medical staff to forecast his return to the playing squad "earlier than anticipated". 

Safety first with Burgess concussion

On that occasion, Burgess was taken off after 31 minutes, passed his HIA check and started the second half in a tight 24-18 win.

The former Sunrise producer looked beach ready in a simple, V-neck grey shirt and black-and-white sandals.

Phoebe also accessorised with a silver watch and wore her luscious blonde looks loosely and in a middle parting.

Embarrassed Burgess calls for calm

In his first game of rugby league since the 2014 Grand Final Burgess was the focal point – whether he liked it or not – in a pre-season trial that saw the Rabbitohs hold off a gallant Titans team 22-20 in Burleigh on Saturday night.

He played 60 minutes, scored a try, hit hard and passed more before the line than perhaps ever before in his career in the 13-man game and most importantly got through with burning lungs as his only injury concern.
