Player managers in
Two leading rugby league player managers have reportedly been found to have broken salary cap rules following an investigation into the New Zealand Warriors NRL salary cap scandal.
Agents Jim Banaghan and George Mimis have been named in a report which says both agents broke salary cap rules in secret deals involving Warriors skipper Steve Price, front-rower Ruben Wiki, hooker Nathan Fien and other players.
Documents obtained by NRL investigators showed the pair, among other enticements, accepted management fees from a third party - alleged to be Cullen Sport, a company controlled by former Warriors owner Eric Watson. Both managers have denied any wrongdoing.
