Question is are they short of cash or are they in danger of exceeding the salary cap yet again ??

NL1 teams have a strict max of ?400k pa, beats me how any club can operate a full time squad under that limit ? 20 x ?20k is ?400k how many Cas & Widnes players will  be on more then that ??

It's funny how the press have all been saying that poor old Cas went down last season because WIgan exceeded the salary cap.
They've never mentioned the fact that Cas exceeded it when they went up at our expense

There's  no  way  Widnes  can  keep  within  the  ?400K  salary  cap  with  the  players  they  have.  If  that  is  the  case  then  by  the  time  they  get  found  out  it  will  be  too  late.

Incidentally  it  says  on  the  BBC  website  Cas  are  looking  at  Taking  Wigan  to  court  over  last  season's  breaking  of  the  salary  cap.  Wouldn't  we  have  a  case  at  taking  Cas  to  court  when  they  overspent  the  year  before.

ok then...................
official press release from last year........................

<cough cough>
AND I QUOTE............

"SUPER League giants Wigan Warriors last night moved a step closer to
relegation to NL1 after they were docked two points and fined
?50,000 for breaching the salary cap in 2005.

But Castleford Tigers escaped with a warning from the RFL after also
breaching the ?400,000 cap in League One last year, when they earned
promotion to Super League after beating Whitehaven in the Grand
Final
.

Wigan's two-point deduction means they now sit joint bottom of Super
League on 14 points, with French side Catalans Dragons, who are
exempt from relegation, and Wakefield.

Haven coach Dave Rotheram said today: "I feel sorry for the Wigan
players and coaches, who have worked so hard over recent weeks.

"They have been docked points over something that happened last
year, so I feel for them."

The RFL have indicated that the Recre is not up to Super League
standard and that Haven will not be promoted even if they win this
season's Grand Final, prompting the club to consider legal action if
they win October's showpiece.

Warriors chairman Maurice Lindsay said: "We have accepted the
findings of the RFL independent panel to which we pleaded guilty.

"It was a difficult season savaged by injury but in accepting the
findings of the panel we must now re-double our efforts and put
everything we have got into the remaining five games of the season."

Wigan revealed they overspent by ?80,000, which represented 52.3% of
income as opposed to an allowable 50%. Any breach between 52 and 55%
triggers a two-point deduction.

Cas said they "marginally" overspent on the cap last term, chief
executive Richard Wright adding: "Every effort is made by the club
to keep within the cap and last year was no exception.


"Each year the club spends as much as it can within the limit of the
cap but we are always going to be close to the line. I believe that
the RFL realised that there was no intention on our part to breach
the rules."

The Tigers and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats were found guilty of a
breach of salary cap regulations and cautioned by formal written
warning.

The clubs were also ordered to pay the costs of the investigation."

take that as you will but i reckon its the proof you wanted

not short on cash,

of the current squad
Danny Williams
Ryan Boyle
Craig Huby
Richard Owen
Michael Shenton and
Joe Westerman do not count on the salary cap as they were all under 21 at the cut off date allowed by the RFL
