Her allegation emerged just three days after Burgess played for St George in a 20-16 loss to the Penrith Panthers on Friday night.
The 29-year-old returned to the NRL after an eight-game stint in 2020 with the British Super League’s Wigan Warriors.
He previously played 149 league games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs from 2012 to 2019.
His brother Sam, 33, also played for the Rabbitohs and won the Clive Churchill Medal for man of the match in the 2014 Grand Final.
