Following reports on Wednesday that the Sea Eagles had committed salary cap breaches, the club have come out firing stating there is no truth to the claims.

Fairfax Media alleged that Manly, among other clubs, were paying players above the salary cap with the NRL subsequently committing to investigate the claims.

After issuing a swift response, the Sea Eagles have again stressed their innocence in the aftermath confirming they've turned to an integrity consultant to clear the club's name after recent match-fixing allegations.

"The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles confirmed today that there are NO allegations in relation to any irregularities with regard to the club’s salary cap," a club statement read.

"The club prides itself on strong governance and the highest level of integrity and compliance regarding the salary cap.

"The club is pleased to see reports that no allegations have been proven in relation to the 12 month match fixing investigation.

"The club is proud of their record of success and took immediate action by bringing in Ray Murrihy as an integrity consultant as soon as the allegations were made.

"Ray wrote an extensive report which cleared the club of any governance issues.

"The club has zero tolerance for inappropriate behaviour and if any charges or substantive claims are made we will tackle them head on and cooperate fully with the authorities as we have always done."
