Sheffield Steelers today made the most astonishing signing in their history- a spot-fixing cheat.

Canadian Tyler Mosienko bet against his own team, in January this year. He and others were exposed and shown the door at Esbjerg, Denmark.

The 30-year-old had joined in a plot to place bets that his own team would concede at least once in the first period of a specific game - they conceded three, ending up losing 7-4. Further “unethical” bets on other games were made by team-mates, according to Danish press.
