Simona’s former partner is said to have lifted the lid on him gambling on opposition players to score against the Tigers last season.

Simona is expected to be whacked with a lifetime ban from the code at a hearing on Friday.

Speaking to Triple M, journo Brent Read reported that Simona’s ex-partner went to the NRL with allegations of death threats.

“The woman who is at the centre of these allegations is Tim Simona’s former partner, who has been identified in some quarters as the whistle-blower and has received – or has told the NRL that she has received death threats,” Read said.

“She’s told them it was on social media and the NRL has gone back through social media and it hasn’t found anything in the form of a death threat – they’ve found some other threats – and they’ve told her to go to police.

“We stress we don’t know where the death threats are coming from, but that’s the latest development in what is a pretty ugly scene at the moment.”
