I'd like to know what it is, and whether the NRL will publish a list of spending on coaching from each club.
My interest comes from reports that the Donkeys are going to throw buckets of cash at Bellyache to lure him north as a "coaching director". This follows the Donkeys paying out millions to Seibold, and further millions to secure Walters as the new coach.
It seems that if there is a cap on coaching spending that the Donkeys are rorting it.

Not sure if it would apply to paying out a coach"s remaining contract , not even sure if it has actually been implemented yet . Anything to do with the likes of the Broncos or Roosters , Storm and maybe others however , will generally have some caveat aspects to make it harder to apply fairly to the broader competition

Storm signed Wallabies coach Michael Cheika as Robbo's assistant if that helps?

That would be a cheaper option too!!
Cheap is not the right word as it does not do the new Manly prospect justice
Good Value is the right word for the right Manly man to fill the role

Everythings a rule until it isnt.

As for monnas or chad as assistants. Yes please. Loved monnas passion. Could be handy converting halves into hookers. Thats the plan it seems

Heard on NRL360 last night that the cap around staff spending is soft. Whatever the cap may be, clubs are required to pay $0.50 for every $1.00 they spend over it.

Essentially large clubs can write a blank cheque.

I think Terry Reader is Broncos Marketing guru....along with the Moro lady and 1 of the directors is Mr Darren Lockyer...to be fair the NRL are the party really at fault with these salary cap and TPA arrangements, as there is a blind eye to many clubs without stating the obvious, they just take advantage of what the NRL allows.

I think they said the cap was $5 mil ...

How in the name of decency ... can you keep a straight face ... when you introduce a cap to even the playing field .... but set it up so that it 100% favours the rich clubs .... that the intention was to knobble in the first place ... FMS ...

Just on coach's salaries ... I remember reading the great Jack Gibson always insisted on being paid the same as the highest paid player in the team ...

Hard to give a bollocking to a player who knows the club values him more than they do you ...

Poor Kevvie on $5ook is going to be talking to a bunch of blokes who spend that on haircuts and tattoos ....

We've always believed that you had to have played at Manly in order to be a successful coach of a Manly team. It has proven to be true and, lets face it, it is harder to go crook at a former Manly great when he is failing as a coach than at an outsider coach, like Barrett.
