Williams remorseful over O'Neill

Storm forward Danny Williams has today expressed his remorse over last night?s unsavory second half striking incident on Wests Tigers second-rower Mark O?Neill, during Melbourne?s 32-18 loss to the Tigers at Leichhardt Oval.

Williams has written to apologise personally to the Tigers veteran for the incident that saw the Storm back-rower sent off in the 65th minute of last night?s match.

?I have written to Mark today to say sorry and that I strongly regret and am ashamed of my actions during last night?s match,? Williams said.

?Clearly it was unacceptable, there?s no excuse for that kind of behaviour and I deeply regret what took place.?

The incident marred an already bleak night for the Storm as the club sunk to its second consecutive loss on the road and slipped out of the NRL?s top four.

Williams? fate will be decided at the NRL judiciary later this week.

?The whole thing is extremely regrettable. It?s now in the hands of the judiciary and obviously I will accept whatever penalty they decide to hand down,? Williams added.

The Storm recorded no injuries from last night?s match. For further information contact
