England star George Burgess charged over gouging allegation

Kiwis coach Michael Maguire is expecting a physical battle against England at Anfield

Burgess' case will be heard by a three-man panel, which includes one representative each from England and New Zealand.

After guiding England to the World Cup final last December, Bennett is delighted they have been able to continue the momentum, despite losing nine members from the team that pushed the Kangaroos all the way in Brisbane.

New Zealand will feel they were their own worst enemies in this contest.

"We conceded a try before half-time again and in the second half made seven errors, whereas England were very clinical".

England showed their guile, however, in their sprint to the finish.

Late in the second-half, Burgess appears to grab at the eye of Kiwi DWZ, trying to complete the tackle.

The signs looked promising from the visitors early.

GEORGE Burgess could miss the start of South Sydney's NRL season if found guilty of an alleged eye gouge on Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in England's Test win over New Zealand. It was the stylish fullback that finished off a slick back line movement for the first try of the afternoon.

Scouser Graham, 33, is already England's most-capped player and will extend his appearances record to 43 in the showdown on Merseyside. It was a connection between the Saints and Wigan, as premiership victor George Williams piloted the ideal pass to send across the Saints winger in Makinson which took us to 6-6 at the break.

The 23-year-old St Helens front-rower will be handed O'Loughlin's number 13 jersey after impressing coach Wayne Bennett during his stint as a replacement for more than an hour in last Saturday's 18-16 win in Hull.

Shaun Johnson then added a penalty goal to give the visitors a 14-6 buffer. The ensuing melee lifted spirits across Anfield and lit the touch paper for the English comeback.

Tomkins' early try in the opening exchanges of last Saturday's slug match set England on their way, putting New Zealand on the back foot nearly immediately. Enter the man of the hour, Tommy Makinson.

Bennett has called on the Rugby League International Federation, who meet this week in York, to push international rugby league to the forefront. For now, they have a chance for a whitewash on home soil, heading to Leeds for the third test next weekend at Elland Road.
