Roosters issued with breach notice

6 June 2005


The National Rugby League will issue a breach notice to the Sydney Roosters over comments made by coach Ricky Stuart in a newspaper column yesterday.

The breach notice will recommend a $10,000 fine subject to submissions from the club over the next five working days.

Of particular concern was the allegation that "it's happening too frequently to think it's just 50-50 calls".

NRL coaches were at the start of the year reminded of their right to criticise decisions but also of the fact they could not assert bias, that they could not attack the integrity of officials nor could they use inflammatory or derogatory language in relation to referees.

"The rules could not have been made more clear," NRL chief executive Mr David Gallop said toady.

"If you assert that referees are biased you will be fined.

"The referees have to be protected from such accusations. Not only are those sort of claims incorrect but they can put the game in the courts if left unchecked.

"Regardless of the pressures building in this competition, those in the game need to set an example in relation to how to accept the referee's decision. Further, it is totally unhelpful to suggest that everyone hates referees.

Ricky causes nothing but prolems. Why the hell does he keep getting away with it?
