Schalk Burger not playing against the poms

The Boks have suffered a huge blow after losing Schalk Burger for Friday night's showdown with England.

Burger received a four-match on ban on Tuesday night after being cited for a dangerous tackle on Samoa Junior Polu during the Springboks' victory in Paris on Sunday.

It means Burger, who has 48 hours to appeal the decision, will miss games against England, Tonga and the United States.

That does suck the refs are taking a hard line with English player phil vickery also banned.
