Leicester Tigers to be investigated for reported Salary Cap breach


Premiership Rugby are investigating allegations against Leicester regarding historical image rights payments.

The Times reports that the Premiership salary cap director is looking at links between Tigers and a now defunct company, Worldwide Image Management.

A statement from Leicester Tigers said "The club is co-operating with Premiership Rugby,"

"Leicester Tigers will make no further comment while the matter remains ongoing," the statement added.

A Premiership Rugby spokesperson has said: "The agreed policy is that we will never confirm nor deny if there is or is not an investigation under way.

"The salary cap director is continually looking at matters relating to the salary cap and it would be inappropriate, and could potentially undermine an investigation if we were to confirm anything.

"However, if the salary cap director concludes that a breach has occurred, he shall charge the club (and/or player, club official, agent) and this charge shall be made public."
