South Sydney star George Burgess faces a maximum three-game NRL ban for his flagrant elbow on Newcastle forward Mitch Barnett on Saturday.

Teammate Hymel Hunt is looking at six matches on the sidelines for a grade-two reckless high tackle on Knights fullback Brendan Elliot from the same game.

A third Rabbitoh, rookie Braidon Burns, has copped a grade-one shoulder charge and could be out for up to two games.
