Rumour Manly over the cap.



  • The Manly Sea Eagles are suspected of breaching the NRL salary cap via secret payments to at least one player.

    Manly are not the only club under scrutiny though, with the past behaviour of several other clubs also attracting police attention.


    A report from the SMH.com.au has suggested that the NSW Organised Crime Squad has gathered evidence suggesting secret salary top-up payments have been made to players from several clubs.

    It’s believed that Manly is suspected to have engaged in salary cap breaches similar to those undertaken by the Paramatta Eels.

    Parramatta were be docked 12 competition points and fined $1 million for breaches of the salary cap dating back to 2013.

    In addition, the NRL has cancelled the registration of five officials at the club.

    “We have to take a stand to demonstrate that the NRL will not tolerate contraventions of the salary cap which plays such a crucial role in giving us one of the closest competitions in Australian sport,” NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said at the time.



  • Ha what a surprise … just read it on Reddit.com website.
    Wonder how the NRL big end of town are going to gloss this one over.



  • THIS IS GOOD NEWS, but when or if, will the nrl get around to the real rooters, eg: broncos, rosters and the new rooters the sharks.



  • Marty Kapow please come back……



  • Please let one of the clubs be the Roosters.



  • Manly is a strange one to come under investigation. Although they did fit DCE in their books, released Watmough and not many others. I had heard that Steve Matai is the problem player because he is injured. They want to retire him under insurance but triple M were saying (rabs I think) that they can’t find him and get him to a doctor).

    Mate that lot always seem to escape scrutiny! Never any questions asked about how Brisbane and Easts, in particular, manage to buy all the top players and still retain most of their squad each season, but if any of the other 13 teams step even slightly out of line, they’re onto it like flies on crap!



  • Ha! Shame they won’t investigate the roosters or broncos, They seem like untouchables



  • I’d be gobsmacked if Tigers ever had anything to do with over-cap secret payments. We just don’t operate that smoothly, we would have been found out already!

    But stuff Manly, it would be my dream come true if Roosters ever got caught for this, I’d be smiling from ear to ear to see Uncle Nick raked over the coals.



  • Sit back and wait Ivan 😆

    Yep the tigers would have in written in the contract somewhere ‘every Friday Jonty will drop a bag off $5000 into your mail box’



  • Mhmmm Dylan Walker is one of the players who has not been paid a TPA Payment… wasn’t there a rumour couple of weeks back saying he’s keen on a move…



  • Now, we just sit back and wait for a handful of other clubs to be found out over similar cap breaches (which I’m sure will eventuate) due to mismanagement of the expected cap. Then we will be able to really hit the market with the cap space we have left.

    I’m sort of disappointed we spent so much of the cap so quickly, especially since I’m not 100% sold on some of the talent in our ranks, including McQueen’s form, Matulino’s knees, etc. Let’s hope the inevitable 2018 fire sale will change my mind about our recruitment.

    Yes, Andrew Moore on abc grandstand stated that Dylan Walker wanted out of his deal a few weeks back.
