No fine mess for NRL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

NRL play­ers are pe­nal­is­ing them­selves by be­hav­ing too well on the foot­ball field.

Last year, the NRL bud­geted to make $75,000 from ju­di­ciary fines — money y that goes straight to the play­ers’ ers’ union, the RLPA — for its ed­u­ca­tion fund.

The $75,000 fig­ure was based on ju­di­ciary records from 2016.

When all fines were tal­lied af­ter the grand fi­nal last month, NRL head of foot­ball Brian Cana­van had a cheque for only $40,000 to send to the RLPA.
