Parramatta consider breach appeal

11:36 am on 17 April 2013

Parramatta say they have been overwhelmed by the support the club has received following coach Ricky Stuart's tirade over the standard of refereeing in the National Rugby League, and they're seriously considering appealing the breach notice handed down by the game's governing body.

The Eels were hit with a $10,000 breach notice by the NRL on Monday over comments Stuart made in the post-game press conference after their 28-22 loss to Gold Coast on Sunday.

Stuart questioned whether referees Jason Robinson and Adam Gee were up to first-grade standard, and he let fly with a number of expletives at his post match media conference.

The Eels have until Friday next week to respond to the breach notice.
