NRL boss working to resolve Cronulla Sharks salary cap saga “as soon as possible”

The NRL says Cronulla’s potential salary cap breaches are on a smaller scale compared to previous indiscretions.

Earlier this year the Sharks informed the NRL of discrepancies relating to historical third-party player payments.

The issues date back to 2015, a year before Cronulla went on to claim its maiden premiership.

NRL boss Todd Greenberg tells Ben Fordham this investigation is minor compared to previous salary cap indiscretions.

“Some of these others ones we’ve dealt with were highly organised programs to deceive the NRL and flout the rules this is of a very different variety.”

Mr Greenberg says the Sharks are well and truly under the salary cap this year, and the NRL is working to resolve this matter “as soon as possible”.

The Sharks have handed their computer servers over to the Integrity Unit as it conducts an investigation.
