When Melbourne Storm moved into AFL heartland and won three minor premierships and two grand finals it seemed like a win for rugby league. Little did we know, the Victorian team cheated to get there.
The Australian sporting community is abuzz following the revelations that for the last five years, the team has breached the salary cap. This footage from the press conference given by National Rugby League chief David Gallop further explains the situation.
Full points to the NRL who have acted decisively, stripping the team of their titles, ordering them to pay back their prize money, and revoking the team’s right to earn points in this competition season.
But now I wonder, what happens next? How deep-seated is this corruption? Who exactly knew it was going on? And most importantly, can this team survive after deceiving its fans and sponsors?
