    Six NRL clubs cop salary cap fines
    AAP

    South Sydney's Cinderella run to last year's NRL finals series has come at a cost, with the Rabbitohs fined more than $70,000 over salary cap breaches.
    Six clubs were fined a total of $237,155 following an audit of all club's books from the 2007 season, down from the $464,849 in fines stemming from the 2006 season.
    Souths were the hardest hit with a fine of $70,625, with Wests Tigers ($46,800), Canberra ($45,813), the Bulldogs ($25,000 with a further $25,000 suspended), premiers Melbourne ($13,917) and Brisbane ($10,000) also ordered to cough up.
    While details of the breaches were not released by the NRL, the governing body claimed most of the fines were related to payments that had been disclosed but were accompanied by incorrect classifications.
    NRL chief executive David Gallop said the audits showed that clubs were working hard to meet the demands of the cap.
    "Even in the case of undisclosed payments that we detected there is a frank realisation from the club involved that a breach was committed," Gallop said.
    "We must retain tough deterrents to ensure that all clubs continue to meet the procedures we have in place.
    "Those procedures are the key to maintaining a level of scrutiny that ensures clubs are on a level playing field."

    Salary cap fine for Storm - again

    April 14, 2005

    Melbourne Storm has fallen foul of the NRL salary cap police for the fifth straight year, being fined $120,000 for breaches dating back to 2001.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    The second section was released in 05. The Storm have somehow cheated (yes, even if only by a little amount) 6 years out of our last 8 !!

    LoL

    They obviously don't give a ****.

    Or maybe they admit to the small offence thus deflecting scrutiny from a bigger issue behind the scenes?

    If it is good enough for Marion Jones....
    Grow some balls Gallop and stamp it out with the toughest action possible. Not going to happen to a glamour News Ltd team is it?!

    Interesting how the Dogs got points deducted for this offence not so many years ago.  Whatever happened to that deterant?  Gallop has no balls, you can see it in his face whenever there's a hard question asked, which isn't often.  The league journo's are in the NRL's pocket and never ask the obvious.

    Good to see the mid season signing of Dog Newton was all legal

    Would like to know what the actual breaches are, generally they are innocent things like an undeclared toilet roll or something just as innocuous.
    Hardly a News Ltd conspiracy, they don't own them all. I'm pretty sure we're the only club never to recieve a breach.

    6 out of 8 years isn't an oversight Bob. This clearly shows The Storm are cheats !
