That goes against the very reason for the salary cap.

The cap was put in place to save clubs against themselves. By ensuring they didn't spend more then they could afford and get into financial difficulties.

When clubs finish down the back end of the field their membership contributions decline and their sponsor monies are adversely affected.

So allowing them to spend more when their income is less is exactly the opposite of what the cap was meant to provide against.

 

The salary cap was also designed to make sure rich teams do not buy all the talent etc and ensure it was a level playing field.

Most of the competitive sports have a salary cap to level the playing field. Also some have a draft or transfer system. American sports, afl and even soccer has it.

NRL thanks to previous legal actions do not have a transfer or draft.

Most NRL sides take years to get over wooden spoon. Most teams usually do not bounce back to win a competition in next 10 years.

I reckon $250k extra will be a god send to bottom two sides and don’t forget not all sides currently are on salary edge. A few purposely ensure that there is money in case they have to upgrade. They are the good clubs.

Doing away with 3rd party deals would fix this.

Unfashionable clubs can't attract the sponsors so have to pay the full tote (more cap space) whilst the likes of the Roosters, Broncos etc have people falling over themselves to be involved, thus players accept less but have good top ups outside the cap.

I remember in the old days a few footy players who used to play “skins” at golf with sponsors to supplement their salaries.

One of my friends said $100 for purchases at certain sponsors would stretch a long way compared to other stores.

Watching the Rabbits over the past few weeks, it will be interesting how Bennett can spark their attack.

Ever since the SOO, their attack has been never reached the heights of earlier rounds. Walker seems a shadow of the early rounds and the forwards are not as fluent as they used to be.

There is a chance with 3 rounds left with games against Brisbane (A), Warriors (A) and Roosters (H), they will be struggling to make top 4.

Plenty of the players are busted. Injuries have killed our momentum along with origin  :sad:

I agree re Souths being busted, they just seem devoid of attacking options recently.

Manly and Parramatta have a great chance of sneaking into top 4. Hasler has being put up as coach of the year but Arthur with almost a side of no names should be in the mix too.

There are rumblings that another coach will fall by the wayside if their team does not finish season well. The only thing saving him is that he is in rough contention and there are not that many attractive options around as a replacement.
