Dragons reach decision on Moltzen
DRAGONS REACH DECISION ON MOLTZEN
The St George Illawarra Dragons have today advised both the NRL and Wests Tigers that the Club will not be pursuing the registration of the contract signed by Tim Moltzen for seasons 2012-14.
The decision is based on the knowledge that the Club's objectives in signing Moltzen would not be achieved - Tim Moltzen's actions and physical fitness do not meet the Club's expectations.
The Dragons still firmly believe that Tim Moltzen should have been prepared to fulfil his commitment to the three-year contract he and his manager Martin Tauber signed on July 12.
Furthermore, the Club will be investigating the pursuit of its legal remedies against the Wests Tigers, for damages.
The NRL has indicated that they are to review the agent's compliance with his obligations under the NRL rules through the Agent Accreditation Committee for Player Managers, an action the Club would support.
Dragons CEO Peter Doust has issued the following regarding the decision on the matter.
