Former Eels CEO breaks silence on cap scandal

Foran set to feel the heat0:40

NRL: Parramatta captain Kieran Foran says the players know nothing about the salary cap drama.

Former Parramatta Eels CEO Scott Seward has finally spoken to the NRL.

FORMER Parramatta Eels chief executive Scott Seward has met with the NRL, breaking his silence on the club’s salary cap crisis during a lengthy meeting with the governing body last Monday.

Seward, who stood down as the Eels CEO last June, attended the 11am meeting with NRL Integrity Unit boss Nick Weeks of his own volition and was supported by a barrister.

According to sources close to the investigation, Seward offered a first-hand account into his role in the Eels long-running salary cap drama.

Seward has come forward with his version of events in the saga which has dogged the club for over two years.

The information provided by Seward and that already obtained by the NRL is expected to lead to the loss of competition points for the Eels side and a significant fine, which could impact the club’s 2017 salary cap.

The Daily Telegraph has learned that the amount of competition points which the Eels will lose, varies depending on the level of accountability accepted by the Parramatta board and administration.

The Eels risk losing up to as many 10 competition points if select members of the current board and or administration refuse to stand down.

The amount of potential points lost can be reduced if members of the current board and or administration accept knowledge of the third-party deals which led to the NRL’s full-blown inquiry.

Despite media reports suggesting Seward was due to be interviewed next week by the NRL, The Daily Telegraph understands he was planning to return to his home in Melbourne after spending the past two days in Sydney.

Seward was unavailable for comment despite repeated calls to his phone by The Daily Telegraph.

The NRL are eager to wrap up their investigation into the Eels, with speculation that chief executive Todd Greenberg is working towards a determination within the next 48-hours.

The NRL would not confirm or deny the speculation.

Seward is yet to speak publicly about the Eels salary cap crisis with his meeting with the NRL the first sign that he is determined to aid the club’s ambition to move on from the crisis.

The Eels face Canberra on Saturday at Pirtek Stadium, with Brad Arthur’s side desperate to bounce back from their last-second loss to Penrith amid a backdrop of uncertainty at the board and administration level due to the salary cap crisis.
