Disgraced former NRL player Ryan Tandy has been charged after allegedly holding someone against their will on the central coast.

Tandy, 32, was arrested at Terrigal on Thursday and charged with detaining a person with intent to obtain an advantage.

The former Bulldogs prop was due to appear in Gosford Local Court on Friday.

The disgraced footballer was convicted of match fixing while playing for Canterbury against North Queensland in 2010.

He was fined $4000 and placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond, with his conviction recorded as he attempted to make money off the first scoring play of the game. Investigations were launched following a $30,000 betting plunge on the game.

The prop forward featured in 36 NRL games across five clubs including St George Illawarra, South Sydney, Wests Tigers, Melbourne and Canterbury.

He played in Melbourne's 2009 grand final win against Parramatta before making a mid-season switch to the Bulldogs the following season.

Tandy returned to rugby league for French club Pia Donkeys in 2012 despite calls from the Rugby League International Federation to cancel his registration.
