Are we surprised? They cheated the salary cap to avoid relegation

Unlikely they would’ve gone over if they weren’t also paying to run a reserve side, coincidence that they announced they aren’t running one this year after this? Perhaps not as affordable as it seems.

Leneghan already oversees big profit losses, falling attendances, unable to match other big clubs with marquee signings and now this.

If they went over they went over. I'll get my popcorn and bucket of pepsi.

According to the BBC;
"The penalty, which includes a £5,000 fine, relates to six separate payments totalling £14,700, which were not declared to the Rugby Football League."

When did the “live” salary cap rules come in? I thought this sort of cheating was impossible now because all clubs finances were monitored for salary cap breaches? Seems odd that cheating in 2017 takes over a year to identify and punish.

Reading the report I take it as that it was "undeclared" therefore it wouldn't appear as "live".

It's not the 1st time they have fallen foul with regards cheating the salary cap, therefore I surprised it's not more points deducted.
