Geez, Warriors still undefeated while Sticky tears his thinning hair out in Canberra.

And you'd swab the Filth, no? 50 point winner one week, flogged by the recently winless Bunnies the next.

And oh dear Slimeys.

As for Parramatta, a shadow of the team that made the finals last year.
This is what happens when you replace one of the best trainers in the business , with someone from another football code. suicide

On a grim day, at least the Drags showed up, putting a lazy 54 against the Tits and getting a useful 46 points difference boost to go with their unbeaten record.

R00ters burst the Knights bubble.

So Drags and Warriors alone on top. In a bit of symmetry, Drags play Knights and Warriors play R00ters next week.

This should be a far bigger scandal than Tapegate but it won't get anywhere near the coverage. Indeed, I wonder if this has been released today given where the rest of the media are at.

Manly fined, former CEO suspended over salary cap breaches
By Adam Pengilly26 March 2018 — 12:14pm

Manly has been slapped with a $750,000 fine and club legend Bob Fulton faces a ban from the game after the NRL handed down its salary cap punishment on Monday.

NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg informed the Sea Eagles on Monday morning of the heavy sanctions after a nine-month investigation into alleged third party rorts.

The Sea Eagles won't lose any competition points.

Manly Sea Eagles must pay a $750,000 fine and their former CEO has been suspended for 12 months, after an investigation into alleged third-party rorts.

Former Manly boss Joe Kelly, who is now chief executive at the Roosters, faces 12 months out of the game over his involvement in third party breaches, while the club's then chief operating officer, Neil Bare, also won't be able to return to the game until January 1 next year.

Both will need to undergo appropriate governance training.

The NRL found Manly's third party breaches totalled $1.5 million over a five-year period after sifting through 800,000 documents, emails and text messages as well as other data from the phones and computers of club officials.

The club have been handed a $660,000 restriction on their salary cap for 2018 and 2019.

Head coach Trent Barrett was also handed an official warning over his knowledge of the rules and governance as head coach.

The club's former general manager of football Fulton, who was unavailable after multiple requests to be interviewed by the NRL integrity unit, is unlikely to be able to assume a role as selector for the Kangaroos.

“The investigation found a number of cases where players were offered undisclosed benefits outside the salary cap to attract them to the club,” Greenberg said.

“These benefits were in the form of third party agreements which were never declared to the salary cap auditor.

“In other words, Manly had a financial advantage in securing the services of players who may otherwise have gone to other clubs. Our salary cap is the main reason we have the closest competition in Australian sport and we will not tolerate any attempt to breach it.
“Every club needs to be aware that any attempt to cheat the salary cap will eventually be detected and the club involved will be heavily sanctioned.”

The salary cap saga has been an ongoing distraction for Barrett's side, which has been stuck in a recruitment holding pattern as it awaited the NRL's verdict.

Attempts to sign a replacement for Warriors five-eighth Blake Green - including Matt Moylan, Mitchell Pearce and Trent Hodkinson - were foiled despite having space left under their 2018 cap to go into the market.

A multi-year extension of hooker Api Koroisau is still yet to be rubber stamped.

The Sea Eagles have handed rookie Lachlan Croker the task of replacing Green in the halves, which has had mixed results as a 54-point round two hammering of bitter rivals Parramatta was sandwiched between losses to Newcastle and South Sydney in the opening three weeks.

Drags just won their 4th game of the season (decent win v Knights) to achieve the feat of winning first 4 games since becoming a joint venture team.

We should have locked up a top 10 position by the end of the year now.

Why have the Coastal Filth not been told they will play out the season without prospect of winning competition points. There is a clear precedent.

They are fined $500k but are forced to reduce their wages bill by $660k over 2 years. So in fact they are ahead.

Tough win by Drags tonight over a gallant Rabbit side.

Drags had the game sewn up at 16-2 with 10 to go, then there was a highly dodgy knock-on call (came off a Souths hand as the Drags player tried to pass it back) in the Drags 22 and Souths ripped in 2 quick tries. It looked like they'd swamp the Good Guys but we hung on.

Dragons defence was top-notch except for a 5 minute spell in the final 10 mins. Jason Nightingale pulled off a number of try savers early.

5 straight!!

I forgot to mention the no try decision against the Drags in the 1st Half that would've extended on 8-0 lead to 14-0. Allegedly Adam Reynolds was denied a chance to defend by a light touch from a Drags attacker. No way known did this touch make any difference to Reynold's ability to defend. In fact he easily got to the "try scorer", who slickly stepped around him. The commentators just shook their heads. It looked as fair a try as you could get.

Luckily it didn't cost the Drags a win in the end.

A noble effort from Mr K. Please lay bet against an Oz player finishing top 10 at the Masters.

Maybe we should have a thread dedicated to Mr K's punts.
