A new scandal for the NRL to deal with.

Police have begun an investigation into alleged match fixing last year.

New South Wales Police have confirmed the organised crime squad has begun looking into matches.

"The Organised Crime Squad is in the early stages of examining information relating to alleged match fixing in the NRL," a police spokeswoman said.

"No further comment is appropriate at this stage."

It's understood the two matches in question were Manly's round 16 and round 24 clashes against Souths and Parramatta respectively.

The NRL was last hit by match-fixing allegations in 2010 when Ryan Tandy was convicted of trying to fix the early stages of a match between his Canterbury team and North Queensland.
