I’m surprised. I wasn’t certain Telstra would go all in, but they have – to the tune of around 180 million clams. So it seems the cap will rise to $5.8m.

This weekend’s NRL grand final features 2012’s two best teams, who also happen to be the past decade’s worst salary cap cheats. Well matched foes indeed.
