THE NRL is to be rocked with allegations games have been fixed, with police investigating matches.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal the State’s Organised Crime Squad is looking at games.

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

“No further comment is appropriate at this stage.”

If the allegeations prove true this won’t be the first time the NRL has become embroiled in a match-fixing scandal.

Seems to be manly games involved.

"It is understood the games under investigation are Manly v Souths round 16 last year and Manly v Parramatta round 24 last year."
 
One thing about the NRL it's never boring. Always something going on. The day when the players behave and we only talk about the on field product is going to be weird.

Despite the easy jokes from our recent form it would provide I'm glad the Warriors aren't involved.

Now what are the implications of this?
Would sides be at risk of losing points or just players being fined/suspended?

The precedent was set with Ryan Tandy.

"Former Bulldogs player Ryan Tandy was convicted in 2011 of trying to fix a 2010 match between his side and the Cowboys.

Tandy was fined $4000 and placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond, the magistrate presiding over the case saying he was clearly involved in a plan to make money off the first scoring play of the game."

Personally he got off way too lightly. Thats hardly a deterrent.

Manly being involved in both the games mentioned certainly raises some eyebrows. Whether there's anything to it or just a coincidence remains to be seen.

I could remember the Ryan Tandy incident but couldn't remember what type of possible punishments were reported at the time.

His manager was tied up in it as well but like a lot of cap cheating etc where the manager is in danger of having their accreditation removed. The heat on the manager tends to ease off.

Another big test for the new CEO after ruling on the Eels cap cheating. Obviously he knew what he was in for taking on but it is another test of his leadership.

And hes going to be cautious as shit.

I mean when the Eels threaten to challenge the NRL in court when they have audio footage of the board cheating, then allegations of match fixing are going to be a true test.
 
Awesome.

As somebody who always believed that alot of professional sports back home were fixed I am not surprised to see this here.

He didn't get off lightly in the end, poor bugger
 
If the Warriors were match fixing, surely they should of won a couple of games, as that's where the money would of been to bet on, So I'm pretty certain the Warriors were not involved in it :p

I doubt the Warriors were involved in match fixing but what concerns me more is those wins that I cherish dearly maybe not be real wins. Players from other teams may have thrown matches against the Warriors for payment.

Are the Warriors a lot worst than we all think, I hope not :)

The warriors would be the kings of fixing, who could tell whether they were being shit on purpose or just as a matter of routine. Even their coach and players can't come up with coherent explanations.

Its annoying how they toss these headlines out without further info, it usually evaporates, like the titans cocaine thing last year went from possibly dealing, possible QLD rep players involved, CRISIS to just a couple of blokes suspended for using recreationaly.

Spot fixing, ala Tandy first scoring play penalty or just giving out inside info seems far more likely, it'd take a lot of individuals being in on it to loose a game on purpose, i.e fix the result of a match.
 
The Betting on the Round 24 game last year Manly vs Parramatta was interesting.

https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/s...g/news-story/99ac35ee1045a0cc0c4e0b9bfc212f70

Manly where hot Favorites at $1.20 to win
Parramatta where $5.40 to win Head to Head

Parramatta won 20 points to 16 in a major upset at Brookvale

But to fix a game, most of the team would have to be in on it, or would they.
It seems very hard to fix a game without someone snitching

You would only need 1 player if you are spot fixing, maybe a playmaker? a half or stand off there seem to be many League players with gambling problems for sure.
