In AFL Essendon wants the Federal Police to investigate a letter supposedly issued from the World Anti-Doping Agency.
And two NRL athletes re-commit to their clubs.
Thomas Brakstad reports.
The news about the letter – which allegedly allows players to take an anti-obesity substance – emerged last week but WADA denies having sent it.
The AFL Commission wants to wait for the ASADA report before involving police.
Andrew Demetriou, AFL CEO: “We’ve seen it, we received a briefing and were handed a copy of the report on Monday. It’s been distributed to all the AFL commission, Essendon intend making the executive summary and the recommendation public early next week I imagine. I think they were due to do it today, but there’s been a slight legal hitch that I don’t think is really significant.”
