Australia's top league players are being distracted in ANZAC Test week by the salary cap issue

and following yesterday's conference of NRL chief executives, the Test prop Petero Civoniceva has slammed the league for dithering over the issue.

Penrith's captain has blamed the game's stalling officialdom for the NRL being nowhere near its potential because of poor decision-making, allowing other codes to leapfrog rugby league.

It was suggested at yesterday's conference there would be no significant increase to the salary cap before the next television deal in 2013.
