24 hours ago | LeagueUnlimited Media
Following the game between the New Zealand Warriors and the Penrith Panthers on 6 May 2023, the CEO of One NZ, Jason Paris, made various public comments regarding the integrity of NRL referees and match officials.
The NRL has raised its concerns with these comments with Mr Paris, and as a result he has agreed to unconditionally withdraw those statements and issue a public apology.
The NRL understands that Mr Paris has also reached agreement with the NRL referees and match officials concerned, and the match officials' association, the PRLMO.
Respecting and protecting NRL referees and match officials is a matter of critical importance to the NRL. While there may be differences of view about particular decisions made during a game, comments that call into question the integrity or honesty of NRL referees and match officials are baseless and unacceptable.
The NRL considers this matter closed, but all those associated with the game should know that any comments that call into question the integrity of NRL referees and match officials will not be tolerated in our game.
