Controversial player dies at age 32.
Disgraced former NRL star Ryan Tandy has been found dead at his parents’ Saratoga home.
In the latest tragic twist in a wasted life Tandy, a known drug user, died after an apparent drug overdose.
Tandy, 32, was a part-time NRL player thrust into the headlines when he fixed a game involving Canterbury and North Queensland in August 2010.
Despite pleading not guilty, Tandy was found guilty of spot fixing and banned for life from the NRL.
Since retiring from rugby league Tandy failed to live a quiet life, and was arrested in January for an alleged kidnapping offence linked to criminal bikie organisations.
Police are expected to release a statement within the next half hour confirming his death.
It is not known whether the death is being treated as suspicious or not.
He played for five NRL clubs over a career that tallied 36 games.
