Parramatta recruit Tony Williams has been suspended by the Eels for the opening two rounds of the 2018 NRL season for a drink-driving offence.

Williams was on Wednesday fined $1000 and had his driver's licence suspended for 12 months by a Sydney magistrate for being "shockingly intoxicated" while driving with three children in the car.

The 29-year-old former NSW and Australian representative was sentenced on Wednesday at Parramatta Local Court for mid-range drink-driving in December.

"Following discussions with the NRL integrity unit and taking into consideration that Tony has undertaken a safe driving course, the club has decided to suspend Tony for rounds one and two of the 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership," Eels CEO Bernie Gurr said in a statement.

"The club views drink-driving as an extremely serious offence and we have reiterated to Tony that this behaviour is unacceptable."

Manly premiership winner Williams signed with the Eels in the off-season after an injury-hampered 2017 at Cronulla.
