The National Rugby League (NRL) has issued Penrith player Nathan Cleary with a further amended breach notice.
The notice sets out additional matters to which Cleary has been asked to respond. The additional matters relate to his co-operation with the NRL Integrity Unit. The further amended notice proposes a fine of $30,000 and a two-match suspension, which would be served at the resumption of the NRL competition.
Fellow Penrith player, Tyrone May, has also been issued with a breach notice relating to the same matter and his co-operation with the NRL's investigation. The notice proposes a $15,000 fine and a two-match suspension.
The notices allege that the players were untruthful in relation to material matters and the proposed sanctions reflect the seriousness of those allegations.
Both Players will now have an opportunity to respond to the matters alleged in Breach Notices before a final determination is made.
