NO OFFER: In Sydney, Brad Walter reported National Rugby League Cronulla players "have never been offered a deal to plead guilty to using performance-enhancing substances and accept a six-month ban, and face a suspension of up to two years if charged with a doping violation." It has been reported former Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority Chief Counsel Richard Redman "had negotiated six-month bans for them if they pleaded guilty." However, Fairfax Media "has been told that is incorrect and Redman merely advised the players of their options if they were to be charged at a meeting three weeks ago, which was also attended by several player agents" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 3/27).
