Legal action taken against Storm coach and CEO

7:40 am on 3 October 2008

Members of the Australian National Rugby League judicial panel, including former Kiwi Darrell Williams, have decided to take legal action against Melbourne CEO Brian Waldron and coach Craig Bellamy.

This follows comments made by the pair over the panel's integrity after it suspended Storm skipper Cameron Smith two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, NRL head David Gallop says he's disappointed the pair didn't take the opportunity to apologise when Melbourne and Manly attended the traditional grand final breakfast in Sydney yesterday morning.
