Got more chance of Elvis, Jimmy Hoffa and John Lennon playing in the back row for wests tigers, than roosters even being salary cap compliant....

Salary caps:
Roosters made from pure diamonds
manly from silver of course
wests tigers from 3rd generation hand me down terry towelling...

Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D

The investigation into reports of cheating at gambling and match-fixing in the NRL has concluded.

In October 2015, the NSW Police Force received information relating to allegations of cheating at gambling and match-fixing within the National Rugby League (NRL).

Inquiries were conducted, and in December 2015, police received further information relating to the same matter, which was also followed up.

In May 2016, the NRL and betting agencies referred information to police relating to suspicious betting, which focused on an NRL match. This information was consistent with previous information brought to police attention.

In the initial stages of inquiry, police executed 59 search warrants seeking all available betting data for numerous NRL games.

As a result of the warrants, investigators seized 46,000 pages of data, which was reviewed alongside a further 300 pages of data from AUSTRAC and more than 1000 pages of telecommunications data.

Following a review of this information, detectives from the State Crime Command’s Organised Crime Squad established Strike Force Nuralda to investigate the matters and determine if any criminal offences had been committed.

Police worked closely with the NSW Crime Commission (NSWCC) throughout the investigation, and with the full-support of the NRL.

During the investigation, strike force detectives identified 13 potential persons of interest, spoke with 161 witnesses, and numerous statutory hearings were undertaken at the NSWCC.

Police also spoke with players, referees, NRL staff, professional punters, and associates of the persons of interest.

The investigation examined the practice of supplying ‘inside’ information for betting purposes (which is contrary to Section 193Q(2) of the Crimes Act).

While investigators were provided information and noted suspicious betting behaviour, no one has been or will be prosecuted under Strike Force Nuralda.

The investigation also examined the practice of ‘point shaving’ – where strong teams, or significant players within teams, who are expected to win by big margins, pull back to only win by small margins.

Investigators did not uncover evidence of this practice under Strike Force Nuralda.

During the course of the investigation, detectives uncovered potential criminal offences, including drug supply and money laundering, which do not relate to the NRL.

These matters have been referred to other investigators from the Organised Crime Squad to conduct further inquiries.

Information relating to potential breaches of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 Act will be referred to AUSTRAC.

While detectives have not preferred criminal charges relating to these issues, their investigation highlighted activities and practices that are deemed as high-risk for the NRL.

In light of this information, representatives of Strike Force Nuralda have recently met with the NRL and provided recommendations to ensure the integrity of the code is not compromised by the infiltration of organised crime.

Strike Force Nuralda has now concluded.

The radio report mentioned money laundering, drugs and match fixing in one breath. Looks like they are different, thanks for posting, ink.

What a basket-case! Basket-case!

Everyone's a basket-case!

Who would have thought, organised crime and gamling infiltrating a code that gets into bed with betting agencies? Never would have happened in cricket or soccer or tennis hey.

The investigation has concluded with no charges laid - sounds like a huge cover-up. I understand that there was some kind of statute of limitations but seriously if a crime has been committed then any player involved ought to be punted (sorry, couldn't resist)
There are two kinds of people in the world - those that live in Balmain and those that wished they did.

Just heard one of the lead investigators say that some players have total debts that exceed the full value of their contracts but they can't pass their names to the NRL. Now that is a worry. These players cannot be trusted to behave ethically.
