The numbers don't include what's considered whole-of-game TPAs, where league sponsors and host broadcasters can weigh in with individual deals.

James Tedesco (Holden), Boyd Cordner and the recently-retired Cooper Cronk (both Fox Sports) all enjoyed additional income linked with the NRL.

A total $2.7 million private sector TPAs were ticked off by the league in 2019, which is almost half the $4.2 million from last season.

NRL chief operating officer Nick Weeks said the reduction in total TPAs was a result of the decorated retirement class of 2018.

Grand finalists Canberra also went from having almost $200,000 worth of private-sector TPAs to just $45k this year due to the collapse of a social media platform.

Weeks also attributed the decrease in a tightening of TPA policies, particularly after Parramatta infamously rorted the salary cap in 2016.

It was only last year that the game took the unprecedented step of unveiling total third-party figures on a club-by-club basis.

"We recognised the genuine concerns our clubs and fans had about third-party agreements," Weeks said on Friday.

"That's why we introduced more strenuous measures to ensure these arrangements are genuine arms-length deals."

Powerbrokers have considered publishing individual TPA figures, but believe the current system has provided the ideal clarity around the murky world of TPAs.

"We are confident that this level of transparency about third-party agreements will improve confidence in the effective operation of the salary cap and reduce the amount of speculation and guess-work about this part of the game," Weeks said.
