Club Statement: Jaeman Salmon

Parramatta Eels Club has fined Jaeman Salmon $10,000 and suspended him for round 1 of the 2019 NRL Telstra Premiership for a low range drink driving charge from a traffic incident late last year. The Club reached its decision following discussions with the NRL Integrity Unit.

Jaeman has demonstrated genuine remorse and has supported this by completing a safe driving course and is currently undertaking welfare and education programs stipulated by the Club. 

The Club views drink driving as an extremely serious offence and is working closely with Jaeman to ensure a clear understanding of his personal responsibilities.
