Titans hit with breach notice

The NRL has hit the Gold Coast with a $5000 breach notice for comments made by club officials towards a touch judge during last Friday's game against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown.

NRL rules state that under no circumstances are match officials to be approached, questioned or harassed in any way by club officials either during or after a match.

The Titans breach notice follows a written warning issued to all clubs on May 19 this year that there had been a number of incidents where club officials had gone close to breaching NRL rules in relation to offering unsolicited advice to match officials on game day.

"Clubs are well aware of the rules in relation to this matter and any breach of these regulations will continue to be penalised accordingly," said NRL chief operating officer, Graham Annesley.

"Match officials must be left alone to do their job without pressure being exerted by club officials."

The Titans have five business days in which to make any submissions in relation to the breach notice. After receiving these, the NRL will determine whether the fine will be enforced.
