Up to 20 players representing from the Cronulla Sharks, Manly Sea Eagles and North Queensland Cowboys purchased supplements from the boot of a car owned by sports scientist Stephen Dank, it was reported last night.

Darren Hibbert, nicknamed ‘The Gazelle’, is involved in ASADA’s anti-drugs investigation and told ABC’s 7.30 Report last night that he had sold the supplements from the boot of his car.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting that Hibbert, who worked with Dank at Manly, has confirmed that he has been interviewed as part of ASADA’s ongoing investigation.

The report now suggests that ASADA’s investigation is now targeting players who continued to maintain relationships with the pair after their official roles at the Sea Eagles had ended.
