NRL Makes Changes to Betting Options

Australia’s National Rugby League (NRL) is continuing its efforts to maintain high levels of integrity in the sport, particularly following the latest betting scandal to hit with Tim Simona of the West Tigers.

In its latest changes, the NRL has prohibited bookies from betting on Under 20 matches to prevent these games from being targeted by match fixers. It has also dropped a number of exotic bets on NRL matches such as most runs head-to-head, most run metres head-to-head, over/under run metre, over/under tackles, player versus player points, 40/20 kicks, first try scoring options and team to trail in the match.

“We communicated last year to betting agencies that they would no longer be permitted to offer a whole range of bets which are loosely statistical-based bets – player runs, over and under stuff,” NRL chief, Nick Weeks, explained to The Australian.

“We have put a line through a whole series of those type of exotic bets. And we’re going to prohibit betting on the NYC this year. So, there are some things that we have been doing without a whole lot of fanfare, in the background.”

This is not the first step that the NRL has taken to combat match fixing in the sport. Earlier this year, they also changed the process by which teams for NRL games are named and now require all clubs to get approval from the NRL to add a player to their team.

Weeks made it clear that the NRL would continue in their efforts to ensure a clean sport, saying: “The truth is that the gambling markets are growing rapidly and will continue to grow. We’re going to continue to invest in people and tools to try to manage the risks around the game.”
