Super Rugby cap breach inquiry nears end

7:36 am on 28 July 2012

The Australian Rugby Union boss John O'Neill says he expects his organisation's investigation into an alleged salary cap breach by one of the local Super Rugby franchises to be finalised in the next couple of weeks.

It has been reported that the un-named franchise rorted the cap by making a player payment via that person's club and passing it off as a "ground fee".

O'Neill says it's taken the allegations seriously and says the integrity of the system has to be maintained for all five Australian Super Rugby teams.
