The NRL has been rocked by allegations of match-fixing, after confirmation that revealed that an investigation is underway following shocking revelations over the last 24 hours.
Australia’s Daily Telegraph broke the news of how the State’s Organised Crime Squad is investigating at least two games last year which are being deemed as suspicious.
In a brief statement issued to the paper, it was simply confirmed by a police spokeswoman that match-fixing investigations are now underway – with no details of how many games or what sides are being investigated.
“The Organised Crime Squad is in the early stages of examining information to alleged match fixing in the NRL,” a police spokeswoman confirmed.
“No further comment is appropriate at this stage.”
The Telegraph has identified two games as ones they believe are under investigation – Manly’s round 16 defeat to Souths last year as well as the Sea Eagles’ 20-16 loss to Parramatta in round 24.
