THE Bulldogs have confirmed that they have identified breach of the 2016 Salary Cap and have reported the error to the NRL.

Canterbury CEO Raelene Castle bought the breach to the NRL after club officials noticed their 2016 salary summaries did not fit under the salary cap whjich stands at $6.8 million for 2016.

“The Bulldogs hold the salary cap in the highest of regards and once we identified a potential breach position that we could not rectify for the 2016 season, we reported this to the NRL,” Castle said.

“The cap position will not be finalised until the NRL have completed their Salary Cap audit process across all 16 NRL Clubs.”

The Cap will increase to $7 million next season and is expected to increase further after the next broadcast deal starts in 2018.
