No conviction for ex-Eels boss over fraud

July 13, 2017

Former Parramatta Eels CEO Scott Seward has been handed a good-behaviour bond for fraud offences.

Former Parramatta Eels boss Scott Seward has been given a two-year good behaviour bond without conviction for his role in the NRL salary cap scandal.

Seward, 41, dishonestly obtained $220,000 from the Parramatta Leagues Club by arranging and authorising false invoices between November 2014 and mid-June 2015.

The Downing Centre Local Court heard the former chief executive's frauds were to cover debts owed by the football club, which is funded by the Leagues Club, to players.
