Rabbitohs lock Sam Burgess.

Sharks winger Edrick Lee has accepted a $1350 fine for tripping in the final match review charge of round seven.

Lee was charged with tripping Penrith's Corey Harawira-Naera late in Cronulla's win over the Panthers on Sunday and entered an early guilty plea.

Rabbitohs forwards Sam Burgess will miss the next two matches while his brother George has accepted a fine after both pleaded guilty to charges coming out of Saturday's win over the Canberra Raiders.

Sam Burgess was hit with a Grade 2 careless high tackle charge following an incident involving Aidan Sezer in the 59th minute of Saturday's match.

He chose to take the early guilty plea, which now means he will miss the next two matches.

George Burgess was handed a Grade 1 careless high tackle charge following a tackle on Raiders forward. By taking the early guilty plea, George will be fined $1550 but will be free to take on the Broncos on Thursday night.
