The NRL Judiciary is the disciplinary judiciary of the National Rugby League (NRL), a rugby league competition. The Judiciary regulates the conduct of players, referees, and other officials associated with the NRL and its clubs.[1][2]

The NRL Judiciary is made up of former players who convene in three-man panels to rule on on-field incidents. The judiciary is currently chaired by Supreme Court of NSW Justice Geoffrey Bellew and made up of former players Mal Cochrane, Sean Garlick, Bob Lindner, Tony Puletua and Dallas Johnson. .[3][4]

An integrity unit was formed on 7 February 2013 and is headed by former Federal Court judge Tony Whitlam.[5]
