    Cronulla Sharks being investigated over possible salary cap breaches
    PHIL ROTHFIELD, SPORTS EDITOR AT LARGE, The Daily Telegraph

    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.”

    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.

    What does the salary cap auditor actually do? Most investigations have been self reporting or ...receptionists

    Investigation will find the Sharks have no need to answer these allegations, a day after their final game of the season
