The NRL intends to cancel the registration of Cronulla Sharks coach Shane Flanagan and Wests Tigers chief executive Justin Pascoe as a result of two separate integrity unit investigations.

Key points:
The NRL found evidence Shane Flanagan was involved in club matters with the Sharks during his suspension in 2014
Flanagan and Pascoe have until the end of January to respond to their penalties
The unit found evidence Flanagan was deeply involved in player recruitment, retention and club business during a 12-month suspension in 2014, handed down in relation to the Sharks' peptide saga.

The club has also been fined $800,000, including the suspended $400,000 from the fine imposed after the supplements scandal in 2013 for which Flanagan was originally suspended.

Cronulla must be 'dead stupid' to record any type of conversations on computers or the like - I have no doubt this kind of behaviour has occurred with other disqualified staff but they sensible enough to make it face-to-face conversation.

There is talk up north of relocating Cronulla NRL Licence to Perth or Sydney, I think this 'punishment' is a way to kick start that process.
