Mitchell Moses says passion was behind the on-field outburst aimed at his teammates during the loss to the Wests Tigers, and he won't be making any apologies.
Parramatta have yet to win a game this season and fell to the Tigers over the weekend.
During the match Moses gave teammate Kenny Edwards a serve as he tried to spark his team in attack.
The playmaker also copped a spray from Michael Jennings as Wests finished with a 10-point victory.
"It's just me being passionate, the boys know that," Moses told reporters.
"It's not a personal thing or anything like that. I'm not going at a person because I don’t like the person. We're a tight-knit group here and we all love each other. It's my job to get up some of the boys.
"If it's deserved that's my job, I'm a halfback, I've got to do that. I get sprayed myself if I'm not doing my job. That's footy, you've got to be able to cop it."
