Parramatta National Rugby League Club Pty Limited player Tony Williams appeared in court today regarding a drink-driving incident. The legal process has been completed and Tony has been fined $1,000 and given a one-year driving suspension.
Following discussions with the NRL Integrity Unit, and taking into consideration that Tony has undertaken a safe driving course, the Club has decided to suspend Tony for rounds 1 and 2 of the 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership.
The Club views drink driving as an extremely serious offence and we have reiterated to Tony that this behaviour is unacceptable.
