Murray cleared by police

After the ongoing saga that first implicated him to an extent in the betting scandal, former Roosters half, and now Eels half Brad Murray has been cleared by police of any involvement in the scandal.

It was December 2nd 2010 that Murray was named as a person of interest in the betting scandal, and he is believed to have been one of the men that had placed bets on the errant North Queensland Cowboys and Canterbury Bulldogs game.

It was CCTV footage that saw the 20-year old placing a bet on the option of a penalty as first points, at a Flemington TAB.

With Murray cleared by the police, he may still face action from the NRL for his involvement, but there is little chance that he will have his tw0-year contract with the Eels terminated.

“Police told me a few weeks ago that Brad is no longer a person of interest to them,” Osborne said.

“We are now in discussions with the NRL about what penalty is appropriate.”
