Stop TAB betting over doping - MP

A New Zealand MP wants the TAB to suspend betting on the Super 15, NRL and A-League games until it can assure punters the competitions are clean and fair.

"The news out of Australia this week about widespread doping and match-fixing in their major sports must be a huge wake-up call for New Zealand as well," Maori Party MP Te Ururoa Flavell said today.

"This is nightmare stuff for true sports fans...the TAB can't be confident the competitions they have been taking money on are clean and fair - they shouldn't be making money from a dodgy product."

The report handed down by the Australian Crime Commission on Thursday reveals a link between the prevalence of banned drugs in Australian professional sport and fraudulent manipulation of matches and betting markets.
