Police launch NRL match-fixing probe

Police have begun an investigation into alleged match fixing in the NRL.

NSW Police have confirmed the organised crime squad are looking into matches.

“The Organised Crime Squad is in the early stages of examining information relating to alleged match fixing in the NRL,” a police spokeswoman said.

“No further comment is appropriate at this stage.”

Early reports suggest two 2015 matches are at the centre of the investigation – Manly’s round-16, 20-8 loss to South Sydney, and Manly’s 20-16 loss to Parramatta in round 24.

The NRL was last hit by match-fixing allegations in 2010 when Ryan Tandy was convicted of trying to fix the early stages of a match between his Canterbury team and North Queensland.
