Eels' 'Gang of Five' return to court

NZN 8/05/2016 James MacSmith

Parramatta's embattled 'Gang of Five' officials return to court on Monday to continue the fight against their NRL suspensions.

Eels chairman Steve Sharp, chief executive John Boulous, head of football Daniel Anderson, deputy chairman Tom Issa and director Peter Serrao will return to the NSW Supreme Court as they challenge the legality of the suspensions handed down to them by the NRL.

The quintet are continuing to challenge their suspensions as club officials imposed by the NRL as part of its provisional sanctions imposed upon the Eels for alleged salary cap indisrections.

The five have been suspended by the NRL as part of its breach notice served to the club on Tuesday. Other aspects of the breach notice included a provisional docking of 12 competition points and a proposed $1 million fine.

The officials want to continue in their capacities with the club as they prepare a response to the NRL's allegations.

That response to those allegations is due on June 3.

The NRL is expected to hand down its final decision around two weeks later.
