    They played that same customs trick with Gals phone. Note to the baddies...don't take your normal phone overseas.

    Surely the journalist would have confirmed with police that the phone was confiscated.

    Surely the journalist wouldn't report something without verifying his facts.

    Surely?

    The NSW Police have warned against media speculation into the NRL match fixing allegations, after Manly's Steve Matai has apparently been wrongly identified as the subject of investigation.


    With several media outlets running a story about Matai's phone allegedly being seized by the police in relation to the investigation, Matai has released a statement denying involvement and advising that he will be taking legal action against the outlets who named him.

    It was announced earlier this week that the NSW Police have assigned a strike force to the investigation, with all of Manly's games from the last two seasons under review.

    Police statement
    NSW Police understands the public interest in respect to Strike Force Nuralda both in terms of the investigation of alleged organised crime activities and in respect to ensuring the integrity of sporting culture in NSW.

    The Organised Crime Squad cannot confirm any specific details of the matters being investigated.

    It is important that people, players and officials who may become part of this investigation are not wrongly accused or have their reputations unfairly tarnished on the basis of rumour.

    Does anyone have the full article about the $500 match fixing with Wollongong Wests juniors?

    I'd like to read it but it's behind paywall.

    Semantics argument. The Police did not technically seize your phone but it is without question that Customs would not have done it without a request by the taskforce.

    You've never heard of Josh Massoud?

    I doubt he has ever confirmed anything he reports.

    Massoud and that other pretty boy parasite at 7 are New Idea writers.

    I hope he has grounds to sue their arses.

    If any Manly player is guikty of match fixing I hope they catch them and ban them. But writing utter shit about people is pathetic

    Exactky. Hence my earlier sarcasm.

    It's time to hound out the shit stains in the media like they hound the players in the game.
