News Corp has stepped up pressure on the Sydney Roosters to pay a $1.1 million fine to the NRL for breaching its rules over its use of social media and other advertising in relation to player welfare and the club’s advertising policy.
The NRL had said it would pay the fine, but a spokesman said the club would appeal the decision.
In its complaint to the Federal Court in October, the NRL said the breach had “severely impacted” its ability to compete in the live entertainment and broadcasting market.
