Is this rumour just general overspending or cheating the cap?

There is usually a few teams that go over the cap due to guys getting upgrades due to making rep squads or calling up more players than anticipated. We are under the new squad naming system now so the second one may not be as relevant.

If the Sharks get done again for salary cap issues. I'd assume it's from information covered from the current investigation that has found issues with different years.

Manly have been a mess the last few years so wouldn't be surprised.

If it's the Roosters. Everyone has always wanted them to get done. That would be a big scalp.

We seemed to have cap issues. Management have said the cap was tight. Since then Gavet and Johnson have gone and the talk has been about that being alleviated.

I'm not concerned with the recruitment for 2018. Most clubs and players had deals expiring around the time of the new broadcast deal so they could work with the new salary cap.
 
Incidentally, for those wondering how the salary cap works - and with particular reference to our situation with the extra funds post Shaun Johnson - clubs need to have it spent by the end of season on Oct 31. So the Warriors can simply pre-pay some players a portion of their next season’s salary if need be to keep some cap and cash free still for next season's recruitment.
