Burgess faces ban for grabbing private part

England forward Sam Burgess is facing a ban over an eye-watering "squirrel grip" tackle in Australia's NRL.

Burgess is accused of grabbing Will Chambers' private parts during his South Sydney side's clash with Chambers' Storm on Friday.

After making a tackle that left Chambers on all fours, Burgess appears to shove his right hand between the legs of the Melbourne star from behind.

Chambers remained prostrate on the ground afterwards and needed treatment from his team's medics.

Former Bradford man Burgess was not punished at the time but now faces a two-game ban unless he can prove his innocence at a disciplinary hearing this week.
