England's Dewsbury-born prop 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 win last Sunday.

An international panel found the former Bradford Bulls junior 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.
