    Manly Sea Eagles face NRL sanctions over potential salary cap breaches
    Dean Ritchie, The Daily Telegraph
    December 12, 2017 6:54am
    Subscriber only
    TWO high-profile former Manly stars have turned whistleblowers to expose the club’s alleged salary cap breaches.

    Manly face having $400,000 ripped from their salary cap for next season and a fine of up to $1 million after the NRL announced it had found potential breaches over the past five years.

    The NRL issued the Sea Eagles with a breach notice on Monday, and the club reacted swiftly on Monday night, saying they disagreed with several of the findings.

    It’s believed two former players helped lift the lid on salary cap breaches worth up to $400,000, which the NRL, as part of its potential punishment, will put on the Sea Eagles’ salary cap for next season.

    The Daily Telegraph knows the identities of the players but cannot name them for legal reasons.

    BIG DEAL: DCE had no part in dodgy deals

    Trent Hodkinson was a potential Sea Eagles target.
    It’s understood breaches are very similar, albeit on a smaller scale, to the Parramatta Eels’ situation of 2016 where the club has facilitated third-party payments, against NRL rules.

    While the Sea Eagles are facing a hefty fine, which would hit the cash-strapped club hard, and reduced salary cap for 2018, they are not expected to incur a points deduction to start next season.

    However, the potentially reduced 2018 salary cap will hamper their efforts to sign either Todd Carney or Trent Hodkinson as a replacement for departed five-eighth Blake Green.

    The Sea Eagles, who were believed to be close to $800,000 under the salary cap next season, have already missed out on Mitchell Pearce.

    The Daily Telegraph has been told at least one Manly player was suspected of receiving secret cash payments in previous seasons.

    Todd Carney has been linked with a potential move to Manly.
    It is known several disgruntled staff members spoke with the NRL about salary cap matters after leaving the Sea Eagles.

    The NRL has issued “two current club officials” show-cause notices, requiring them to explain why they should not be deregistered.

    Manly faced match fixing allegations investigation by NSW Police and the NSW Crime Commission for more than a year.

    While no action was taken against the Eagles, it is believed that investigation may have uncovered irregularities in the club’s salary cap.

    In a statement, new Manly chief executive Lyall Gorman said the club would seek an extension to the usual five-day deadline to respond to the breach notice.

    “There is disagreement with several of the NRL findings and consistent with our rights under the NRL rules and regulations have commenced a path of legal review and response,” Gorman said.

    Gorman is the fourth Sea Eagles CEO in five years, following on from Tim Cleary, now Roosters chief executive Joe Kelly and David Perry.

    While club great Bob Fulton returned to the club in 2015 to help the club rebuild from a disastrous period on and off the field. Fulton ended his 50-year association in October.

    There is no suggestion any of those officials did anything wrong.

    “The notice concerns preliminary finds of potential breaches of the salary cap over the last five years,” the NRL said in a statement.

    “Should these preliminary findings be confirmed, proposed sanctions could include a significant fine for the club.

    “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.”

    NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg said Manly and the two officials had been given an opportunity to assist during the investigation.

    Manly co-owner and chairman Scott Penn gave the NRL his club’s company computers and mobile phones through the investigation.

    When asked about third party deals several weeks ago, Penn said: “The one thing we can control is third parties. I am not sure why we’re constantly being targeted. We have said all along with allegations that we will comply.

    “If people bring forward evidence and we will deal with the consequences. This is just another case of our brand being unfairly targeted. It’s purely innuendo.”

    Once again, the NRL only find out about salary cap cheating due to whistle blowers.
    They are f**king hopeless at finding these things themselves.
