Recently retired NRL star Sam Burgess is due to face a court south of Sydney over an intervention order taken out on behalf of his father-in-law.

The former South Sydney captain, who announced his retirement a week ago, has been charged over an allegation he intimidated Mitchell Hooke in October.

While Burgess isn't required to face court over the intimidation charge until December, the apprehended domestic violence order is due to be mentioned on Wednesday at Moss Vale Local Court.

NSW Police confirmed last week Burgess, 30, was charged after officers were called to a property at Glenquarry, east of Bowral, over a domestic dispute.

No one was injured in the incident.

The England and Great Britain international announced his retirement last week, having failed to recover from a chronic shoulder injury that forced him to miss the current Lions tour of New Zealand.
