A DIFFICULT BET: In Sydney, Proszenko & Aston reported the NRL's decision to reconsider its relationship with the gaming industry comes as Waterhouse was branded ''gutless'' after refusing for the second time to "front a parliamentary inquiry into the promotion of gambling in sport." NRL spokesperson John Brady said, ''It was a case where we were in discussions but the terms weren't concluded. We have not signed any alternate sponsor at this stage."
