Tom Burgess is slammed by footy fans after being caught grabbing Bulldogs star’s private parts in ‘grub act’ which left him in a heap during South Sydney’s mauling of their NRL rivals
Tom Burgess has landed himself in hot water with footy fans after appearing to grab the genitals of a rival player during South Sydney’s win over Canterbury.
Latrell Mitchell stole the show at Accor Stadium as he grabbed a hat-trick to help Jason Demetriou’s side to a dominant victory over their NRL rivals on Good Friday.
But eagle-eyed fans spotted a ‘grub act’ from the English forward committed 12 minutes into the second half, when he left Bulldogs star Josh Reynolds in a heap after appearing to squeeze his private parts with his left arm.
However, referee Gerard Sutton did not see the incident, nor did the Bunker review it, and Burgess’s act went unpunished.
Yet he has not won favour with NRL fans on social media, who were quick to condemn the 30-year-old.

‘Funny most of the time Tom Burgess can’t hold onto balls,’ one fan posted. ‘What a grub.’
‘Already had the ball. Decided he had to grab two more,’ another said.
‘What an absolute grub act this was from Burgess,’ a third fan added.
It is not yet clear whether the incident will be investigated by the judiciary.
