NRL CEO Dave Smith Says League Not To Blame For Slow ASADA Investigation
Published May 9, 2013
FEELING THE EFFECTS: In Melbourne, Honeysett & Read reported Smith's comments "will have major ramifications for the case after suggestions that ASADA could cancel planned interviews with 31 players across the game if it feels they are being unco-operative." NRL Cronulla "welcomed the news from Smith and the NRL before indicating it was more than happy to commence interviews again." Interim Cronulla CEO Bruno Cullen said, "I'm pleased with Dave's statement in that regard and, as we always have been, we are ready, willing and very eager to get back into the interview process." Even if interviews do start again next week, "it could be months before they conclude" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 5/9).
