Parramatta Eels' action against NRL dismissed by Supreme Court amid salary cap breaches

ABC News ABC News 7/06/2016

The Supreme Court has dismissed proceedings brought by five Parramatta officials attempting to block the NRL's move to de-register them for involvement in the club's salary cap breaches. 

The NRL has given Eels chairman Steve Sharp, chief executive John Boulous, deputy chairman John Issa, director Peter Serrao and football manager Daniel Anderson until tomorrow to show cause why they should not be deregistered for their involvement in alleged salary cap breaches totalling about $3 million.

Parramatta has until Friday to show cause why the team should not be stripped of 12 competition points and the club fined $1 million.

The Eels stand to lose the 12 competition points they earned during the first nine rounds of the 2016 competition before becoming salary cap compliant for round 10. Legal teams representing the five Parramatta officials and the NRL will return to the Supreme Court on Friday to settle the NRL's claim for its legal costs.
