Stuart cops $10,000 fine

11:32 am on 16 April 2013

The Parramatta Eels league coach Ricky Stuart has been fined $10,000 for his expletive-laden tirade in which he questioned the impartiality of the referees after his team lost to Gold Coast on Sunday night.

Parramatta were on the receiving end of an 8-1 penalty count in the second half, prompting Stuart to unleash his frustrations after watching his Eels give up a 22-8 second-half lead.

The club has five days to come up with a response to the $10,000 breach notice from the National Rugby League.
