Clubs have allegedly been compensating players outside the salary cap with either cash payments or other benefits.

Rugby League officials and the New South Wales police are believed to have gathered information on several clubs with the Manly Sea Eagles attracting attention, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

It comes just months after the NRL deregistered former Wests Tigers centre Tim Simona when he was found to have placed numerous bets on himself in matches last season.

The NRL is in "constant dialogue" with police as the governing body prepares to investigate allegations that Manly Sea Eagles breached the salary cap.
