Powerful agent cleared to return to rugby league after ban lifted following Castleford Tigers’ Cheyse Blair scandal

Two powerful agents have had their bans lifted.

News Corp has revealed that they have got their hands on a leaked email from NRL Agent Accreditation boss Paul Massey, who confirmed the immediate return of Isaac Moses and fellow long-serving manager Gavin Orr.

Moses and Orr successfully put forward their case to an NRL accreditation panel last night and, as such, have had their bans lifted.

“Please see attached the list of currently Accredited Player Agents,” Massey said in an email sent to all NRL CEOs and recruitment staff.

“The list contains the details of both Gavin Orr and Isaac Moses who were last night (Tuesday night) re-accredited as Agents following a period of cancellation.”

Moses had lost his registration back in February 2021 after being found guilty of breaching his agent obligations in 2017 when he was assisting his then client, ex-Parramatta Eels captain Tim Mannah.

Moses had the likes of former Melbourne Storm captain Cameron Smith on his books as well as current Parramatta star Mitchell Moses and Sydney Roosters’ Matt Lodge.

Meanwhile, in the coaching world, Moses works with North Queensland Cowboys boss Todd Payten as well as Newcastle Knights head coach Adam O’Brien.

Orr himself returns after a four-year ban – he had his registration cancelled by the NRL following an alleged breach of the salary cap rules which involved former Parramatta and Melbourne and current Castleford Tigers man Cheyse Blair.

It had been believed that Orr could have well been facing a lifetime ban, but he too has returned to the sport.
