The NRL has terminated the accreditation of powerful player agent Issac Moses.

The NRL has terminated the accreditation of powerful player agent Issac Moses which is sure to spark a player market frenzy after the game’s powerbrokers upheld the decision to deregister him.

The NRL on Thursday notified Isaac Moses he would be rubbed out of the game following his attempts to downgrade the verdict handed down by the Appeals Committee last year.

Moses was found to have breached his obligations as an agent in 2017 when he assisted former client Tim Mannah to give evidence to the NRL that was false and intended to mislead an investigation into the Parramatta Eels.

The committee, chaired by Ian Callinan with panelists Michael Cleary and Max Krilich, described Moses’ breach as one of “great seriousness”.

Moses has informed his clients that he can no longer represent them, however, the Herald reports the player manager indicated to them that he would be back in 12 months.

Moses can re-apply for accreditation whenever he likes but it’s understood he’ll be out of the game at least two to three years before the accredited agents scheme even considers allowing him back in the sport.

The NRL claims it will crack down on players, teams and coaches who communicate with Moses and intend to fine or suspend those who break the rules.

In the past player agents have managed to wiggle around bans by having others in there company sign off on deals but the NRL is hellbent on not letting that happen this time.

Players can now keep the six percent agents fees they were being charged by Moses. However, some players may choose to rollover their contract to another agent in Moses’ company. Moses’ biggest name is Cameron Smith, while he also manages a string of coaches.

Moses lost James Tedesco, Nathan Brown and code-hopper Israel Folau from his client list last season and now stands to lose even more.

League officials are also putting plans in place to stop managers to have players and coaches on their books due to a conflict of interest that may occur.
