NRL Keeping Match Fixing Quiet Until Games Over

New match-fixing allegations involving high-profile NRL players have been revealed by a Sydney radio station.

The reports confirm what many have suspected for years, that rugby league in Ausfailure is rigged. How long it has been going on it anyone’s guess, but they’ve been playing the game over here for 100 years.

Triple M reported today that some of the NRL’s highest paid players were allegedly involved in fixing games, as well as player managers and Australian underworld figures.

Penrith great and Triple M regular Mark Geyer said that he thought the alleged matches did look suspect after first hearing about, then reviewing them.

“It makes me have some doubt on a few of the things I am getting spoken to about,” said Geyer, who did not reveal the matches alleged to have been fixed, Fox Sports reports.

Geyer confirmed the allegations and that eight games are under suspicion on his Twitter account posting: “Ok the rumour this morning was about an elaborate match fixing scam that involves up to 8 games this season involving very high profile ppl”

According to fellow Triple M panellist Stuart MacGill, if the allegations were true the NRL wouldn’t act until the season ends.

“If there is an issue here, we’ve been told that the NRL won’t act on this until after the finals series so that they don’t detract from the great football that we’re all anticipating over the coming weeks,” the former test cricketer said.

Fox Sports reports that NRL communications officer John Brady contacted Triple M to deny the report.

The allegations follow a police investigation into unusual betting trends in the round-24 match between the Cowboys and Bulldogs, when there was a sharp increase in bets on a penalty as the opening scoring play.

Earlier this month three Pakistan cricketers, Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir, were suspended over spot-fixing allegations.
