WATCH: Sam Burgess fumes at reporter: “Why do you want me to answer that question?”

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.

Reporter: You would have been free to play if you were a cleanskin. Do you need to curb your aggression Sam?

Sam: No.

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.

Reporter: Okay.
