NRL SAGA DRAGS ON: In Melbourne, Adrian Proszenko reported Advanced Sports Nutrition employee Darren Hibbert "could be fighting a fresh legal battle after he was stood down by his long-term employer." The man dubbed ''the Gazelle'' awoke on Monday "to find his work phone was disconnected after the supplements supplier had sacked him without notice." Hibbert, "considered a central figure" in the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority's investigations into the National Rugby League supplements saga, "immediately contacted his legal team regarding unfair dismissal proceedings." The move "prompted a backflip of sorts later," when Advanced Sports Nutrition Founder and Dir Peter Memete told Hibbert his contract was ''on hold'' and would be reviewed in a fortnight (THE AGE, 12/17).
