    Musgrove charged with indecent assault over hotel incident

    Wests Tigers have been made aware of an alleged incident involving recent recruit Zane Musgrove and reported the matter to the NRL Integrity Unit.

    The former South Sydney forward and another man have been charged with aggravated indecent assault following an incident at a Coogee hotel.

    According to the club's statement: "Wests Tigers takes its position in the community very seriously and will work with the NRL Integrity Unit and NSW Police on the allegations. The club will make no further comment on the matter until the investigation is complete."

    NSW Police confirmed two men have been charged following an investigation into an alleged indecent assault in Sydney’s east last month.

    "About 12.30am on Saturday 24 November 2018, a 22-year-old woman was allegedly indecently assaulted by two men at a licensed premises in Coogee," according to the police statement.

    "The woman reported the alleged incident to security and later made a report to Eastern Beaches Police Area Command. Following inquiries by detectives, a 22-year-old man attended Maroubra Police Station on Wednesday 5 December 2018.

    "He was arrested and charged with assault with act of indecency, aggravated indecent assault – offender in company, and common assault. About 8am on Thursday 6 December 2018, a 22-year-old man attended Maroubra Police Station.

    "He was charged with assault with act of indecency, and aggravated indecent assault – offender in company."

    Both men were granted conditional bail and will appear at Waverley Local Court on January 23.

    Musgrove, who has played 27 NRL matches with Souths and one Test for Samoa in 2017, was released by the Rabbitohs last month to join the Tigers.

    The front-rower appeared in court in September and pleaded guilty to damaging property following an incident after an argument with his girlfriend. He was fined $1100 and ordered to pay $500 in costs to repair the damage.

    Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe has been deregistered by the NRL

    Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe has been sensationally deregistered by the NRL over alleged breaches of the salary cap.

    In a major bombshell, the Tigers face being penalised $639,000 from their 2019 salary cap on top of a fine of $750,000.

    The stunning breach notice and penalties have emerged in wake of a two-month investigation by the NRL into an ambassador agreement with Robbie Farah before he left the Tigers to play with the Rabbitohs following a falling out with then coach Jason Taylor.

    The ambassador’s role, offered in 2015, which Farah was expected to take up once he finished his career was valued at $639,000 and the NRL believes the payment should have been disclosed and included in the salary cap.

    The NRL have handed down their sanctions

    Wests Tigers

    The NRL proposed a fine of $750,000 late last year for failing to disclose an Ambassador agreement with Robbie Farah when he finishes his career and for misleading the NRL in relation to an application for cap relief.

    The NRL has considered the Wests Tigers response to the breach notice - which apologised for the error – and has agreed to reduce the penalty by 50 per cent. This means the club will be fined $375,000 for the breach.

    In addition, the club has received a $639,000 salary cap penalty (equal to the value of the Ambassador agreement). The NRL has agreed to spread this penalty over the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

    Club CEO Justin Pascoe has also apologised for his failure to comply with the rules in drawing up the Farah agreement and other governance failings. He has been suspended for six months (backdated to 19 December, 2018). He will be able to resume his duties on June 19 this year.

    A request by the Wests Tigers to register Zane Musgrove, who is currently facing indecent assault charges, has been refused until the case is concluded.
