Manly have refused to suspend Tony Williams, instead opting to fine the giant winger as well as ordering him to undertake community service following his drink driving charge.

On Tuesday Williams was charged with mid-level drink driving after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit in a random breath test in Sydney's west.

Yet he has been cleared by the club to play in Monday night's clash against Melbourne.

The Sea Eagles have still to determine the amount of the fine, with chief executive Graham Lowe adamant the punishment was in line with the seriousness of the incident.

"The issue is a serious one, a very serious one," Lowe said in a statement.

"Tony Williams is a footballer and playing rugby league is his job.

"He will need to play plenty of games to pay for his upcoming fine which is yet to be decided but it will be more than significant."
