Broncos investigated by NRL for alleged salary cap breach

THIRD-PARTY deals with Brisbane players worth up to $500,000 are being investigated by the NRL after the Broncos reported concerns of a possible salary cap breach.

In an act that can be compared to that by New Zealand Warriors management in 2006, Brisbane officials advised the NRL the club may have breached salary cap rules by guaranteeing third-party deals for players.

It is understood the value of the third-party deals under investigation total $500,000 over three years.

However, Fairfax Media has been told that no money was paid to any Broncos player, suggesting the issue came to light after complaints by a player or players about a deal not being fulfilled.

Brisbane officials immediately reported their concerns to the NRL and are comfortable with the way the club has acted.
