Tandy charged with match-fixing

Former Storm and Bulldogs prop Ryan Tandy has been officially charged over his involvement in the NRL betting scandal, with the charge of match-fixing.

After the initial charges came through more than 4 months ago of lying to the NSW Crime Commission about his involvement, Tandy has been stood down by the NRL for a month now.

The hearing, which goes all the way the back to the 2010 Rd 25 clash between the Cowboys and the Bulldogs, had Tandy concede a penalty in front of the posts, all a part of the betting plunge on the game.

Whilst Tandy himself was not in court, the matter has been stood over until the 19th July, with the NRL still discussing the options of de-registration, or a life-time ban for Tandy.

In the NRL’s Code of Conduct, Section 22 clearly states the following:

It states that ”a club or person shall be taken to have been involved in the fixing of a match if the natural course of that match has been interfered with in any respect”.
