Canterbury are reportedly in breach of the NRL salary cap to the tune of about $100,000.
Bulldogs' halves Trent Hodkinson and Josh Reynolds celebrate after Hodkinson's match-winning field goal against the Warriors.
The Seven Network yester evening reported the Bulldogs, some months ago, had discovered that they were over the cap for 2017 and alerted the NRL.
Canterbury face a probable hefty fine over the breach.
The original figure is believed to have been up to $160,000.
Bulldogs CEO Raelene Castle, however, has told Seven News she's confident it will be less than $100,000 by the time final numbers are crunched within a few weeks.
By self-reporting to the NRL, it is anticipated Canterbury will be fined an amount equivalent to the final breach amount, rather than being hit with a possible deduction of premiership points.
