Burgess was found guilty of behaviour contrary to the true spirit of the game (gouging) by an worldwide disciplinary panel following an incident in last Sunday's second Test against New Zealand at Anfield, and the suspension will rule him out of this Sunday's third Test at Elland Road.
Play was delayed while Watene-Zelezniak received treatment from the Kiwis medical staff with Burgess among the England defenders that tackled him to the ground.
England prop George Burgess could face a five-match ban after being ordered to face a disciplinary regarding an alleged gouging offence.
"It is not in my makeup as a rugby league player and never has been".
However, the Rugby Football League announced on Monday that New Zealand cited the incident and they referred Burgess to a disciplinary hearing.
"I accept my punishment but I will never accept that I gauged a fellow players eye intentionally".
Burgess had earlier tweeted accepting the 4 match ban but saying he would never accept he would eye gouge intentionally, as he had too much respect for the players he plays against and with.
Mayhew says Burgess' fingers were looking for the eye and the outcome could have been catastrophic.
The 23-year-old Penrith fullback was unsure if Burgess' act was intentional. "Whatever he gave me helped a lot", Watene-Zelezniak said post-match.
"I'm sure he didn't do it on goal him and his brothers are good guys and they've done really good things for the game". I don't think that's in their kit bag.
England have already won the series 2-0 having also beaten the Kiwis in Hull.
