NRL's Parramatta Pitches 'Radical' New Proposal For Flexible Salary Cap
Published November 26, 2012
CAUTION NEEDED: In Sydney, Dean Ritchie wrote there is "danger in allowing Parramatta to bend the salary cap rules because other clubs are sure to make use of such wriggle room." Overseas rugby union clubs "have already heard about the NRL's resistance to register Folau and are preparing offers." Folau could "easily end up in French or Japanese rugby union for 12 months." Folau is managed by Isaac Moses, who sent fellow AFL convert Karmichael Hunt for a stint in French rugby before the former Bronco started with Gold Coast Suns in the AFL (DAILY TELEGRAPH, 11/26).
OPEN WARFARE: Also in Sydney, Brad Walter reported Parramatta Dir Steve Sharp fears it could become ''open warfare'' between new coach Ricky Stuart and the board if "a ticket formed by the triple premiership former Eels star doesn't succeed at upcoming elections." Sharp has organized the ParraFirst ticket to "contest the Dec. 8 elections." If the ticket is successful at the football club elections, Sharp "wants a review of Parramatta's current structure and constitution, which requires four leagues' club directors to sit on the football club board" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 11/26).
