Inflated invoices latest Eels revelation

Parramatta reportedly made inflated invoiced payments to club suppliers to fund third-party deals for their NRL players.

In one case, the Eels invoiced a $13,000 payment to a clothing company for goods that have no record of ever arriving, according to Fairfax Media.

It is alleged that money, recorded as paid to Zibara clothing company, was then used to make third-party payments to former player Daniel Harrison as part of a deal to see him exit the club in 2014.

Other companies reportedly paid above market rate for their work include Green Options – who maintained Pirtek Stadium – and Egroup security.

The NRL are investigating the allegations, and whether any players or officials profited from the inflated deals with the companies.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by the players or the external companies involved.

Meanwhile, despite the continued allegations of manipulated third-party deals, Eels chairman Steve Sharp and his deputy Tom Issa are understood to have no intention of standing down.
