South Sydney forward Tom Burgess is facing suspension for a shoulder charge in his team's 20-12 NRL loss to Manly on Monday night.

Burgess was handed a grade one charge by the match review panel on Tuesday for a hit on Manly playmaker Daly Cherry-Evans in the 77th minute at Allianz Stadium.

He will miss one match with an early guilty plea and risks a two-match ban if he contests the charge.
