Putting that aside for a moment, the illegal payments made in 2015 helped them keep an illegal team for the 2016 season, no matter how you slice it... They should be immediately stripped on the 2016 title.
I agree with you completely and hope this is the case, but if the Sydney-bias let the Eels continue playing for points, I have a bad feeling it will let the Sharks keep their title - unless payments made specifically
in 2016 are found, effectively tying their hands.
