Tautai has knuckles wrapped

Parramatta have taken immediate action against winger Taulima Tautai after it emerged that he was arrested for drink driving around two weeks ago.

Eels bosses fined the 21-year-old $5,000, suspended him for two matches, and told him to undertake a driver awareness course.

Police reportedly pulled over Tautai on June 11 where he blew a positive breath test.

Parramatta Acting Chief Executive Andrew Hill told AAP in a statement:

“We had a positive meeting with Taulima and his management and whist he is very apologetic and disappointed in his actions we have to send a clear message in cases like this.”

“The club hopes that this issue will serve as a reminder of the standards and responsibilities that our players need to maintain.”
