Gould takes swipe at salary cap as
Payten is squeezed out

Sydney Roosters coaching director Phil Gould has taken a swipe at the National Rugby League's salary cap following revelations Todd Payten has been squeezed out of the club.

Payten still has a year to run on his contract but is on the lookout for a new side.

The club's increasing number of representative players, and subsequent bonus payments, is understood to have swallowed up much of their cap and Gould says it is a "disincentive" for success.
