Betting agencies around the country have suspended betting on the blockbuster opener to the NRL season involving the Brisbane Broncos and South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium.
With media reports suggesting the Broncos are next in line to be hit by the drug scandal sweeping through Queensland sport, betting organisations shut down betting on the big match.
“As this story develops we have decided to suspend betting until more news happens,” TAB Sport’s Matt Jenkins told AAP.
“We don’t know how big this is going to be so it’s protecting the punters more than anything.”
It is rumored that up to five past and present Broncos are involved in the sting.
Sportsbet however have kept their betting open on the fixture with Brisbane out to $2.25.
