The Parramatta Eels have stood down Corey Norman from the club’s Round 19 game against the Penrith Panthers on Sunday.

Corey today pleaded guilty in a Sydney court to one charge of drug possession and one charge of possessing a restricted substance.

In each matter, Corey has had a conviction recorded and been fined $400; he now has 28 days to lodge any appeal to the sentence.

The club will meet with the NRL this week to review the matter, before Corey meets with the Eels’ disciplinary committee next week.
