Nine game suspension for Travis Burns

7:31 am on 2 August 2012

Travis Burns' National Rugby League season is over after the Penrith playmaker was found guilty of an intentional high tackle on the Sydney Roosters prop Martin Kennedy and slugged with a nine-game suspension.

The nine-match ban is in addition to the three games he'll miss after pleading guilty to a chicken wing tackle on Mose Masoe in the same game.

With five rounds of the season remaining, Burns could potentially return for the Panthers in round five next year if he misses two trial matches.
