Bulldogs CEO in talks with Police

The Chief Executive Officer of the Bulldogs Rugby League Club, Mr. Malcolm Noad, said today that he had initiated discussions with Deputy Commissioner, Mr. David Madden following an allegation against a Bulldog player of using recreational drugs.

Mr. Noad went onto say that the police would not reveal the identity of the player, but that the Deputy Commissioner had referred the matter to the Local Area Command for investigation.

"I was informed by Deputy Commissioner Madden that there was no indication that any player was dealing in drugs and that the alleged drug referred to in last night?s media reports was a recreational one.

"Because the police had advised me that they consider this alleged offence to be of a low-level nature, we do not anticipate that the Club will be informed of the outcome of any investigation for at least three weeks."
