SYDNEY, July 4 AAP - Todd Carney is appealing his sacking by Cronulla, says his agent David Riolo.

Riolo said on told Triple M on Friday that due process hadn't been followed by the Sharks when they cut ties with the star five-eighth on Sunday after an unsavoury photo of him was published on social media.

Riolo reportedly wrote to the NRL claiming the Sharks didn't follow the correct protocol for dealing with disciplinary issues as agreed in the collective bargaining agreement between the NRL and the Rugby League Players' Association.

"Todd was on a long-term contract at the Sharks and he got fired by a phone call which ironically came after the press release had already been sent out," Riolo said.

"Also, he still hasn't received any written notification five days later of a breach notice or even a termination.

"There are things within the NRL contract, a process that needs to be followed and it is clear as day what you have to do and that is send a breach notice.

"That then gives the player five days' notice to attend to that and appear before the board.

"None of this has been followed and he has just been treated with complete disrespect.

"Regardless of the issue I think everyone deserves a fair hearing."
