NRL clubs demand bigger slice of the pie from the ARLC

News Limited reports in The Australian that while the NRL clubs are believed to be happy with the ARLC’s offer of an extra $3m over the next two seasons, they want the money to come with no strings attached — there have been suggestions it would be repayable if the clubs failed to sign new participation agreements.

The clubs also want a guarantee that the club grant from 2018 will be 30 per cent above the figure for total player payments, an NRL licence in perpetuity, a legal review of the constitution governing the independent commission and a 30 per cent slice of future profit.
