Rugby is 'clean of fixing'
Cape Town - English Rugby Football Union (RFU) CEO Ian Ritchie is confident that the game has not been affected by spot-fixing.
Ritchie was speaking at a conference where ministers and MPs were discussing corruption in sport.
It followed the arrest of six people through an investigation into football by the British National Crime Agency (NCA).
English football club, Blackburn Rovers, confirmed that their striker DJ Campbell was one of the six people arrested.
Ritchie, however, is adamat that rugby is clean.
He told the ESPN scrum website
that it was made "very clear" through the Gambling Commission that there are no dubious betting patterns in rugby, not even a sign of it.
He did, however, warn that they must be aware that the problem could arise and be ready if it happens.
He said they've put together a rugby integrity unit which will assure they are ready should the problem arise.
