The career of Wests Tigers player Tim Simona is hanging by a thread after he allegedly made bets on a number of rugby league matches.
In what will be a huge blow for the Tigers just weeks before the new season, the NRL today issued the Samoan international with a notice to cancel his registration.
He will now face up to the integrity unit to plead his case with the 25-year-old having five business days to respond to the notice.
Under the NRL’s betting code, no NRL employee, NRL club employee, player, player manager or game official is allowed to participate, or be directly or indirectly involved in any way, in gambling in relation to rugby league.
An NRL statement read: “The NRL today issued a notice of intention to cancel the registration of Wests Tigers player Tim Simona. The notice relates to alleged breaches of the rules relating to gambling on NRL matches. Simona will now be prohibited from training or playing with the club until the matter is finalised.”
