Disgraced Storm official, AFL heavyweights in biz collapse

The collapse of a sports uniform manufacturer involving prominent sports administrators from the worlds of AFL and rugby has taken a new twist. Cara Waters and James Thomson of SmartCompany report.

Melbourne Storm

Disgraced sports administrator Brian Waldron, the man at the centre of the Melbourne Storm salary cap breaches that cost the club two premierships, has been dragged into the collapse of a clothing company that makes uniforms for grassroots sports clubs.

A week after telling staff at the collapsed clothing firm Kombat the firm was unable to pay their wages or entitlements, Waldron is leading a new company called Kombat Teamwork, which hopes to buy the assets of Kombat Pty Ltd.

    Gee I hope Waldo got his “entitlements” before it all turned pear shaped?

    Andrew Beck of RSM Bird Cameron is giving false/incorrect information here. Mark Kellet has posession of all of the IT systems and equipment and he now has them all online and ready to go despite only bidding to buy the Kombat PTY LTD company.If any other bidder was successful in buying the company, they will not get much, including the entire customer contact list.
