Lawyer Claims National Rugby League Open To Legal Action Over Three-Man Tackles
Published April 2, 2014
CONTRACT INVESTIGATION: In Sydney, Proszenko, Walter, Lane & Carayannis reported the management team for Cronulla Sharks prop Andrew Fifita "has asked the NRL to investigate why his multi-million-dollar contract with Canterbury failed to come to fruition." Fifita knew that the deal "was on the verge of collapse when he made his controversial comments about wishing he'd signed with rugby union." Representatives for Fifita met NRL officials at League Central on Tuesday "to outline elements of the deal that Canterbury allegedly failed to honour after having reached agreement three weeks earlier, when the player signed a memorandum of understanding with the club." The shortfall was worth up to A$1M ($900,000) over four years. The long-form contract Fifita received last Thursday was worth A$335,000 under the salary cap and A$250,000 in third-party agreements (SMH, 4/2).
