NSW Police say the former South Sydney Rabbitohs player was subjected to a random roadside drug test and was taken to Southern Highlands Police Station where a second oral fluid test was carried out. Burgess has been charged with driving a vehicle without a licence and driving an unregistered vehicle. Earlier this month, he was found guilty of intimidating his former father-in-law Mitchell Hooke with the intention of causing him physical and mental harm in an incident at the family’s Glenquarry property in October

The England-born former footballer also pleaded guilty to driving without a NSW driver's licence while a resident, an offence for those who've lived in the state for more than three months.

Tuesday marked the first time the 32-year-old former prop had returned to Moss Vale Local Court since successfully overturning a conviction for intimidating his former father-in-law in 2019.

The local magistrate in February found Burgess had yelled "f*** you, I'm going to get you" 20 centimetres from Mitchell Hooke's face during an expletive-riddled rage, sparked when Burgess was asked to leave the Hookes' Southern Highlands property in October 2019.

But Goulburn District Court Judge Mark Williams in March upheld an appeal, saying the former footballer's version of events was "at least, reasonably possible".

While accepting the argument occurred, Burgess denied swearing in the home and cast the father of his estranged wife Phoebe Burgess as the aggressor.

Burgess retired in 2019 due to a chronic shoulder injury, having amassed a 270-game NRL and English Super League career and stints with England's national rugby union and rugby league sides.

He stood down from roles as a commentator and South Sydney assistant coach in October.
