Gold Coast have been fined $300,000 and hit with a suspended penalty of four competition points over a salary cap breach in regards to former player Scott Prince.
The penalty was issued after an investigation by the NRL integrity unit which was instigated by the new management of the club.
Manly, Newcastle, Wests Tigers and Sydney Roosters have also been issued fines of more than $90,000 for more minor salary cap breaches.
The Titans have had $75,000 of their fine and the docking of competition points suspended as they self-reported to the NRL.
A statement released by the NRL on Thursday said Prince was paid substantially more than the contract lodged with the NRL stated.
“This difference in remuneration was never disclosed by the previous Titans administration or Mr Prince and was only unearthed by the new management,” the statement said.
“Mr Prince’s role as an NRL One Community Ambassador expires this month and will not be renewed.”
The NRL added that there was no evidence of systematic rorting of the salary cap by the Titans.
