Busy week for NRL judiciary

6:06 am on 24 July 2012

It will be a busy week for the NRL judiciary which will consider charges against eight players from round 20, including one against Penrith's Travis Burns who could be suspended for half a season.

Burns is facing a possible 17-week ban after his send-off for a high shot on Sydney Roosters prop Martin Kennedy as well as a "chicken wing" tackle on Mose Masoe in his side's 28-16 win on Sunday.

And a war of words has erupted between South Sydney and St. George Illawarra after Greg Inglis was left facing a potential five-match ban for his much publicised shoulder charge on Dean Young, who was stretchered off wearing a neck brace.

Souths coach Michael McGuire claims rival coach Steve Price tried to prejudice the case against Inglis by commening on the incident after the game, which is against the rules.
