The NRL Integrity Unit are investigating allegations raised today relating to Manly Sea Eagles breaching the salary cap.
A spokesman of the NRL has made it clear that, at this stage, they are not in possession of evidence of any violations which would warrant any disciplinary action.
However, it has been reported New South Wales Police and the NRL have uncovered fresh allegations a number of NRL clubs making secret payments to players.
Manly are the only club mentioned at this stage but they have released a statement denying any wrongdoing.
“The club doesn’t answer or respond to unsubstantiated rumours but is fiercely protective of its reputation in the sporting and business world,” the statement read.
“There are in fact no allegations that the club has been the subject of in relation to any components of the NRL salary cap or lower tier cap compliance.
“Quite the contrary we recently had our 2017 midyear salary cap audit completed by the NRL in record time and without adjustment.”
The NRL spokesman stated: “We are in constant dialogue with the police and will take action if it is warranted.”
