NRL Salary Cap/Third Party Agreements - NRL Football Operations Website (Integrity)

I have searched this Forum to see if there was a separate thread which Forum members can post their comments on in relation to salary cap/third party agreements and other NRL issues.

I couldn't find anything specifically that had this heading, although there are many posts in other threads mentioning the salary cap, third party agreements, rorting etc. If I am wrong, then I apologise.

I've included the website for the NRL Operations in the heading so that people could just go to it without having to read all of the posts in the thread to find it for quick reference. It is a good read for people like myself on the following:-

1) NRL payments for the top 30
2) What players can earn outside the salary cap
3) Frequently asked questions
4) Third party agreements

So I can see that a club like Easts has worked out how to "manage" or "manipulate" the cap and third party agreements to benefit themselves.

Interesting to read some of the reasons why a player may sign with a club.

Anyway, if interested, please read.

Interesting, D.D. It seems the amount players can earn outside the salary cap is "unlimited", provided it is arranged at arms length from the club and paid directly from a corporate entity to a player. Stating that the salary cap was bought in to "even up the competition" seems at odds with this provision.
As far as the Roosters, there are other factors that influence players deciding to sign with a club other than just money, although it would be a major factor. Coach, player roster, support structure, location, chances of winning a premiership, etc all come into it. The Roosters have this in spades, plus a ruthless winning culture and an astute CEO with a network of business contacts.
I don't think they need to game the system to sign top players: the system allows them to do it.

Meanwhile, at the Dragons we have the WIN Corporation......

The rorters manage the system as though they invented the system!

On another fall of the chair moment today. Daryn Lockyer was interviewed today on Broncos current bad run of losses.
His reasoning was that the salary cap had its limitations and the club may not be managing the cap too well.

It takes me back to 1992/93 when dragons lost 2 grand finals to Broncos. Ironically they were years when there was NO Salary cap.

Dragons those years were about 2.4 million and Broncos 6.8 million chock full of internationals.

The NSWRL had a salary cap from 1990 onwards, until the NRL took over in 1998.

I believe back 30 years ago it was around 1.5 M.

SALARY CAP BREACHES AND PENALTIES

April 1991: Canberra revealed to be in breach of salary cap when it won the 1990 Winfield Cup.

July 1991: Revealed the Raiders substantially breached their $1.5 million salary cap for 1991.

June 1993: Gold Coast fined $50,000 for exceeding 1992 salary cap by $150,000.

July 1994: North Sydney fined $87,000 for breaching salary cap.

Raiders were in breach when they won the comp, and the year after.

Maybe it was inclusive of 3rd party payments though i do remember a paper article showing the difference
Just before the grand final.
