Player arrested in rugby league betting probe

Police say rugby league forward Ryan Tandy of the Canterbury Bulldogs has been arrested for allegedly providing false evidence during its investigation into suspicious betting activity.

New South Police are investigating betting irregularities during a National Rugby League match between Canterbury and North Queensland on August 24 last year.

There was a betting plunge on the first points of the game being from a penalty, with suspicions raised about Tandy’s role after he was penalised for lying on an opponent in front of the goal posts.

Tandy’s arrest today followed searches at several homes in Sydney during which police say they confiscated documents and cellphones.
