    Manly Sea Eagles facing 'significant fine' after NRL salary cap breach notice


    [​IMG]



    Manly are facing a "significant fine" after a lengthy investigation by the NRL's integrity unit found potential breaches of the competition's salary cap by the club over the past five years.

    The NRL announced on Monday afternoon that it had issued Manly with a breach notice, giving the club five days to respond, as well as issuing show-cause notices to two club officials.

    Manly are facing a "significant fine" after a lengthy investigation by the NRL's integrity unit.
    "Should these preliminary findings be confirmed, proposed sanctions could include a significant fine on the club," the NRL said in a statement.

    "The club could also be required to adjust its salary cap for 2018 to recognise commitments made to players that are found to be in breach of the cap.

    "In addition to the matters relevant to the club, show cause notices have also been issued to two current club officials, requiring them to demonstrate why their registrations should not be cancelled."

    Don't think it was much to do with Hasler news report the last five years since 2012 they have been over.

    The amount hasn't been report yet.

    But it could have something to when Manly were trying to Mitchell Pearce. Penn was asked by the reporter are TPA delaying the announcement Pearce Penn said to the media that Manly don't use to tpa never have only the salary cap.

    Fine's mean nothing, how come they shy away from deducting points these days? Could it be that the whole thing is now corrupt and no-one would survive? Salary Cap does not work and it must be thrown onto the pisser floor where it belongs!

    I don't care if a club goes over a bit, it never really changes anything on game day.

    How on earth do they bust the cap when teams like the rorters and brisbane are ok. If it's only a fine, it means nothing and is pointless.

    IMO, the sharks are really stinky, cause clubs like the roosters,storm and broncos have TPAs galore and huge advantage in the marketplace. The sharks don't but have amazing depth and are always in the market for any new player that comes available.

    According to the scribes on NRL 360 tonight, Manly have $800k to spend in 2018 & may have to include $400k from these indiscretions into their 2018 cap.

    Media Watch: Manly salary cap breaches ‘as blatant as it gets’ says Paul Kent

    MORE details of Manly’s alleged salary cap breaches have come to light, with one senior rugby league journalist describing the case “as blatant as it gets”.

    The NRL issued breach notices to the northern Sydney club and two of its senior officials after an investigation uncovered potential breaches of the cap over a five-year period.

    The Sea Eagles later issued a statement denying at least some of the findings, and will fight the breach notice.

    But NRL 360 co-host Paul Kent revealed the worrying extent of the alleged rorting.

    “The NRL have uncovered evidence, allegedly, whereby Manly have been signing players for example to $150,000 and they register the contract at the NRL for $100,000,” Kent said.

    “Which is as blatant as it gets when it comes to cheating.

    “It’s not a lot of money. It’s significantly less money than Parramatta and it’s spread over five years.”

    Parramatta was last year fined $1 million and docked 12 competition points for breaches of the salary cap, which ultimately robbed them of playing finals in 2016.

    But the NRL is unlikely to dock points from the Sea Eagles in 2018.

    Senior News Corp reporter Phil Rothfield explained why the two cases are viewed differently by the NRL.

    “It’s identical in that it involves third party payments, and payments that at this stage allege involved Manly club officials,” Rothfield told NRL 360.

    “When I say it’s identical to Parramatta, monetary wise I think it’s about 25 per cent. We’re talking up to $400,000 worth of payments to players that shouldn’t have been made with the help of Manly officials.

    “What will happen from here, if found guilty ... the Sea Eagles are going to have to add $400,000 to their salary cap next year, and what that means is the hopes of signing Trent Hodkinson or Todd Carney now looking very remote.”

    Honestly, only thing I can think was damage done to cap by:
    Matai
    B Stewart
    G Stewart
    Foran
    DCE
    Taupau
    Tommy T
    Watmough

    Given it was backdated 5 years.. but then... why has it taken them 5 years to find this (the NRL).... unless a disgruntled ex player is speaking out.

    Might be the case given match fixing investigation is still ongoing.
