Fine for Raiders coach's comments

3:06 pm on 22 May 2014

The Canberra Raiders have been issued a breach notice following comments by coach Ricky Stuart about the refereeing during last weekend's NRL rugby league clash with Penrith.

The NRL's Head of Football Todd Greenberg says the league has a duty to protect match officials against excessive criticism or comments which attacked their integrity.

He says the comments and language used by Ricky Stuart on the weekend were excessive and a $10,000 breach notice has been issued to the Raiders.

The Raiders now have five working days to respond to the notice.
