The Gilgronis appeared to have secured a home semi-final at the weekend after defeating the San Diego Legion 44-28, but it all now appears in vain.

The club are yet to make an official comment on the decision.

The MLR’s salary cap in 2020 was set at $500,000. Their roster includes the likes of US Eagles Bryce Campbell and Marcel Brache, as well as former All Blacks second row Isaac Ross.
