Sea Eagles facing sanctions over salary cap breach

Sea Eagles facing sanctions over salary cap breach

The Daily Telegraph understands the Sea Eagles' salary cap breaches are very similar, albeit on a smaller scale, to the Parramatta Eels' situation of 2016 where the club has become involved in organising third-party payments.

Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans says he is willing to cut his monthly salary by $5 million if it will help the Sea Eagles get through its latest salary cap crisis.

The NRL said the Sydney northern beaches club was facing a "significant" penalty after the integrity unit concluded its investigation.

MANLY have nearly certainly cost themselves the chance at signing Trent Hodkinson or Todd Carney after revelations of salary cap rorting.

Two unnamed NRL club officials, who have or still work for Manly, have been handed show cause notices and will be required to provide information as to why the governing body should not cancel their registrations.

"Based on our legal team's preliminary review, there is disagreement with several of the NRL findings and consistent with our rights under the NRL rules and regulations have commenced a path of legal review and response", Gorman said.

Past fines for salary cap rorting in the NRL have varied from lows of $15,000 for breaches of the second-tier cap, to the monumental $1,689,000 the Melbourne Storm were slugged for systematic cheating.

The club has five days to respond however Gorman indicated they would be asking for an extension.

It means the Sea Eagles, who chased Mitchell Pearce as a replacement for Blake Green's move to the New Zealand Warriors, are unlikely to be able to lure Trent Hodkinson or any other established playmaker to the club in 2018.

The investigation has been ongoing since the police shut the case on Manly's involvement in organised crime in October.
