South Sydney captain Sam Burgess was left infuriated by a persistent reporter on Monday.
The England star will miss the Rabbitohs crucial NRL finals match against the Roosters after picking up a one-match suspension.
Slammin’ Sam’s discipline has been a hot topic this season and his latest ban came on Thursday after pulling the hair of Roosters winger Billy Smith.
Although a minor offence, Burgess has exceeded the number of times a player can be fined in a season, with loading from three previous offences resulting in the one-match ban.
A clearly frustrated Burgess took questions from the media on Monday and after one reporter decided to push his luck, Sam put him firmly in his place.
'Why do you want me to answer that question' ?

Reporter: You would have been free to play if you were a cleanskin. Do you need to curb your aggression Sam?
Reporter: Why not, you’ve been suspended?
Sam: What do you want me to say? Tell me what you want me to say. Why do you want me to answer that question?
Reporter: I’m not trying to put words in your mouth.
Sam: Well you kinda are, because I’ve said no and then you go on again. So what do you want me to say?
Reporter: I wanna know how you feel about it?
Sam: Well I’ve just told you, I’m disappointed. So that’s how I feel.
