The National Rugby League has today warned the Canberra club that it will closely monitor any disciplinary action taken against Raiders player Joel Monaghan. <br><br> NRL Chief Executive Mr David Gallop said that he was shocked and appalled at the image circulated of the player in the media today. <br><br> “We have a system of allowing clubs to take the initial action in relation to disciplinary issues as they are the employers and we will maintain that principle,” Mr Gallop said. <br><br> “The fact of the matter remains that in any circumstance this is an appalling incident and one that has offended everyone associated with the sport. <br><br> “It is important that the club deals with it appropriately and that it reports to the NRL as soon as possible on the outcomes.”
