Cronulla Sharks being investigated over possible salary cap breaches

THE Cronulla Sharks’ premiership campaign has been rocked by revelations the NRL’s integrity unit is investigating the club for potential salary cap breaches on the eve of the finals series.
Integrity unit forensic investigators arrived at Sharks Leagues club three months ago after the club’s new chief executive Barry Russell conducted an internal review and found suspicious payments dating back to 2015. He reported it to the NRL.

BUZZ ROTHFIELD COMMENT: The hardest piece I’ve had to write
The Daily Telegraph understands the amount involved is around the $250,000 mark but could go higher once thousands of documents have been examined.
Although one Sharks official admitted: “Now they’ve taken our server, we don’t know what they’ll find.”
Sounds serious. The amounts being mentioned are not small.
Going by precedence their season has to be in jeopardy.
How's the timing coincidence. I think not
Strip their one and only premiership, it's the right thing to do
Can’t wait for some witty relocation comments
The other top 4 sides are shitting themselves.
As a storm fan, I fully endorse this
Jokes aside I hope for the games sake it isn’t as serious as it sounds
It’s getting embarrassing

The Cronulla Sharks informed the NRL Integrity Unit earlier in the year of salary cap discrepancies relating to historical third-party player payments, discovered during a Club instigated governance review.
The Sharks self-reported to the NRL and asked for their assistance in investigating this matter. The Club is fully cooperating with the NRL Integrity Unit, allowing them access to any information they require to complete their investigation.
The discrepancies occurred under previous Club Management. This is a historical issue, we are currently salary cap compliant for the 2018 season having passed our mid-season salary cap review.
Due to the ensuing investigation by the NRL Integrity Unit, we will be making no further comment until the outcome of the investigation is known.
Relocate them to Christchurch!
Media gets called f**kwits, media returns serve
Watch this all get completely blown out of proportion during the investigation with so called journalists making shit up.
What does the salary cap auditor actually do? Most investigations have been self reporting or ...receptionists
They already are mate
The games a joke. 3 months and it gets announced now
Lol kick them out of the comp
Strip their 2016 comp
Execute Paul Gallen and Flanno
Yes of course Broncos and roosters third party agreements all ok
Investigation will find the Sharks have no need to answer these allegations, a day after their final game of the season
Turn the porch light back on
We are the josh papali of rugby league
