The National Rugby League have continued their war on player and club misconduct – handing out several rulings on Friday morning that include a fine for Dylan Napa and confirmation Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe would be reinstated as boss of the club.
Following the announcement yesterday from the NRL of the ‘no fault’ rule which has scrubbed Jack de Belin from the game, it was confirmed Manly centre Dylan Walker was also suspended due to ongoing domestic violence case against his partner which is still before the courts.
Greenberg went on the record today saying Napa’s leaked videos were an act of ‘gross stupidity’ and consequently fined 10% of his 2019 salary.
The Sharks fine has been reduced to $750,000 with the NRL confirming Cronulla was under the cap in their 2016 premiership-winning season. The coach that helped them get there, Shane Flanagan’s deregistration stands in Australia but can accept roles in Europe in the Super League.
North Queensland veteran Scott Bolton has been given a 10 week suspension by the NRL but that can be halved if he does an educational presentation in front of his fellow players in Brisbane later this season while Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe will be reinstated to his post in July of this year.
