NRL fines 6 clubs over payment and
cap breaches

The New Zealand Warriors and several other clubs have been hit with large fines by the National Rugby League for payment offences.

The Warriors have been fined $17,000 for failing to declare payments.

Exact details are still to be released, but it has been confirmed they have not exceeded the salary cap.

Three other clubs, Brisbane, Newcastle and Penrith, have been fined for the same reason.

However Melbourne has exceeded the cap, and NRL have issued a fine of $150,000 dollars.

Amazingly, Souths has been fined for a breach of the second tier salary cap for players outside the top 25.
