Didnt I say lst year that things where Dodgy


Rugby league's most sensational match-fixing scandal is set to be played out again with three key players behind a massive betting plunge on a Bulldogs and Cowboys match to face a Sydney court on the eve of the NRL season opener.
Just weeks after the Australian Crime Commission released a damning report warning of the threat of match fixing in sport, the case involving rugby league identity John Elias, former Parramatta player Brad Murray, and Jai Ayoub, the son of Murray's manager Sam Ayoub, will be before the Downing Centre Criminal Court on Wednesday.
The Director of Public Prosecutions is seeking a joint trial for the three over their alleged role in the betting plunge on the Cowboys to open the scoring by a penalty kick in their match against the Canterbury Bulldogs in August 2010. The move to have them tried together follows last month's decision by Justice Elizabeth Fullerton in the Supreme Court overturning a November 2011 decision by a Local Court magistrate to dismiss the charges against Elias.
Justice Fullerton noted that the prosecution case was that Bulldogs player Ryan Tandy manipulated the game by giving away a penalty to the Cowboys early in the game.

Tandy is the only person in Australian history to be convicted of match fixing. He escaped prison but was fined $4000 for attempting to ''gain financial advantage by deception''. He was also found guilty of lying to the NSW Crime Commission, for which he was given a six-month intensive correctional order that included community service work.
The prosecution case against Elias is that he ''dishonestly structured a series of cash bets with TAB betting agencies at Rozelle and Haberfield in the total amount of $5100 in the expectation of securing winnings in the amount of $98,455,'' said Justice Fullerton.
