Newsflash just went over Triple MMM, 2UE & 2GB, Titans are expected to be striped of all 2010 competition points due to salary cap breaches.

2 other clubs are meant to be in a spot of bother as well.

NRL making an announcement at 11am

Wow. I really hope the Tigers are in the clear…

I think with the rigmarole that went on with trying to get Lote under the cap, we have to be!

That was only $100k in total. I'm sure we would have freed that up pretty easily by backdating a few payments.

That is one of the worst decisions by the nrl. They would have received concessions if they had only played state cup before First grade.

There was scattered talk of this on Sunday and yesterday via several media outlets, all of which was stressed to be a rumour. Seems funny that one radio station this morning has said that Titans solicitors are at Fox Studios now at the NRL offices.

One betting outlet has withdrawn bets on the Titans for the premiership, that has happened this morning… too many things just to be hot air IMO

I'm amazed that Australia's two most esteemed sports journalists, Danny Weidler and Phil Rothfield, haven't reported on this yet.

I would guess because nobody really knows what is going on…

So long as it isnt anything to do with the Tigers I really could not care less

Good to hear, but lets just see what happens, as the Storm rort was just a rumour 2 days prior to the bombshell being announce….

Given the Titans other issues (fail to pay tax and various vendors) nothing would surprise me
