The Wests Tigers are set to be penalised by the NRL integrity unit following a two-month investigation of Robbie Farah’s lucrative post-career ambassador deal, as reported by the Sydney Morning Herald.
The league will hand down it’s findings from the examination when the ARL Commission meets at League Central on Tuesday.
The same meeting will also determine whether or not Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan is penalised for allegedly making contact with the club during his one-year suspension in 2014.
The NRL has been investigating Farah’s arrangement with the Tigers worth approximately $400,000 for four years following his messy split from the club in 2016. It is believed that the ambassador role was offered to Farah as a show of good will for his contributions to the club.
Farah has reportedly not accepted the deal and therefore it has not been included in the Tigers’ salary cap, but breaches policy as it was not declared to the NRL.
The league made very club’s third-arty agreements public last week in a bid for greater transparency to eliminate further salary cup mishaps.
