Powerful player agent Isaac Moses has had his NRL accreditation cancelled for 'procuring and assisting' former client Tim Mannah to lie to and mislead an integrity unit investigation in 2017.

On Tuesday night the NRL concluded disciplinary proceedings against Moses for breaching his obligations as an agent, determining that his accreditation should be cancelled.

Moses manages some of the highest profile players in the NRL including Cameron Smith, Aaron Woods and David Klemmer through his company, Cove Agency.

An investigation by the NRL's integrity unit has accused Moses of assisting Mannah to give evidence that 'was false and intended to mislead an investigation of the NRL integrity and compliance unit' back in 2017'.

"Player agents have a very influential role in the game and with the players they represent," said interim NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo in a statement.

"Where agents fail to adhere to the standards expected of them, we will intervene to take action under the NRL rules.

"That is what we have done in this case after a thorough investigation by the league's integrity and compliance unit."

Under NRL rules Moses is allowed to appeal and will be free to continue acting as an NRL agent pending confirmation of an appeal.
