NRL teams face being stripped of competition points and having club officials deregistered if they are caught doing business with deregistered player managers, under a new proposal put to the ARLC. Player managers are reportedly one of the biggest drivers of the new reforms after a series of meetings with the NRL. The NRL currently has over 100 accredited agents and the player managers that comply with the rules want bans to be strictly policed. Under the proposed system club officials could face bans for calling, meeting or even emailing banned agents. The fear is that by not allowing agents to manage both players and coaches, the coaches would then be driven to signing with unaccredited agents.
