Selection chaos, positional confusion and NRL crises
exploding on both sides of the Tasman - as far as build-ups
to a test match go, it's hard to imagine a worse scenario for
the Kiwis and coach Stephen Kearney.
NRL integrity unit boss Nick Weeks says Parramatta's salary
cap crisis is proof that clubs who attempt to work outside
rugby league's salary cap will be caught, sooner or later.
Manu Vatuvei has been given leave from the Warriors on
medical grounds following last week's drama when six players
were stood down for breaching team protocol.
The Warriors will not be awarded this year's Auckland Nines
title despite the Parramatta Eels being stripped of the
silverware and almost certainly the $400,000 prizemoney that
came with it.
