After yesterday’s revelations that the NSW Police‘s organised crime cops were investigating the NRL over allegations of match fixing, the organisation has stepped up and said “Wait, what? Nah… nah, don’t reckon.”
Sportsbet has an integrity and information sharing agreement with the code which is a cornerstone of protecting the integrity of the game, where we immediately report any suspicious betting behaviour to the NRL and/or law enforcement agencies.
This all comes after reports from last year by Fairfax that gambling identity Eddie Hayson claimed to have paid six NRL players $50,000 to fix a game. He allegedly put down $500,000 on South Sydney beating Manly by more than eight points in a round 16 fixture. Which they did.
