Here is a Statement from the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

“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. 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 behavior 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.

The Club would like to recognise the overwhelming support received from our stakeholders, corporate partners, members and fans in relation to the unjustified innuendo of the past 12 months and we will continue to represent them with the utmost pride, focusing on our best practice values, behaviours and performance, both on and off the field.”
