ARL Commission Chairman Peter V'Landys has promised to take action against 8 supporters accused of racially abusing Penrith winger Brent Naden during last night's game against the Warriors.

The group was thrown out of Central Coast Stadium after Naden made a complaint to match officials.

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary says their priority is the mental wellbeing of Naden." Whatever was said, and I don't know exactly what was said, it definitely affected him. And by the sounds of it, yea the appropriate action was taken. What happens from here, I'm not too sure."
