GOING TO COURT: THE AGE reported sports scientist Stephen Dank "is taking NRL club Cronulla to court over allegations Sharks players were injected with horse drugs." Dank has filed a statement of claim in the New South Wales Supreme Court claiming former Cronulla Chair Damian Irvine made defamatory statements about him "to the effect that he injected Sharks players with horse drugs" (THE AGE, 3/28). In Sydney, Stuart Honeysett wrote a photograph taken by Cronulla officials of a vial marked "For Equine Use Only" during Dank's time at the Sharks "could be used as part of the club's legal defence" after the sports scientist Wednesday initiated action for defamation. A player "questioned what equine meant after a substance was administered to him" in '11 (THE AUSTRALIAN, 3/28).
