Warriors club statement

Warriors CEO Cameron George and winger Marcelo Montoya have apologised for an on-field comment made in Friday night’s fifth-round NRL match against North Queensland in Redcliffe.

Montoya has today been charged with a contrary conduct offence for a comment he is alleged to have made following a tackle on Cowboys winger Kyle Feldt. The matter has been referred directly to the NRL judiciary.

“Both Marcelo and the club are extremely apologetic for the offence this has caused. It was unacceptable,” said George.

“Marcelo accepts responsibility and knows there’s no place for such behaviour both in the game and in society generally.”

George said the Warriors will make a special submission to the judiciary when it considers the charge and penalty this week.
