Statement in response to media speculation about ASADA investigations
The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have received no formal request from the Australian Sports Anti-‐Doping Authority to interview players.
Sea Eagles General Manager David Perry met with players today and confirmed that ASADA has not identified any person at the Club that it wishes to interview.
"We have made it clear to ASADA from the outset that we will cooperate with them in every way and they have said only that they may want to question players and club staff as part of their wider investigation at some time,” Mr Perry said.
The Club reiterates its complete faith in the programs and procedures in place during the period ASADA is investigating in Rugby League.
The Sea Eagles squad is focused solely on Sunday evening's blockbuster clash against Newcastle Knights at Brookvale Oval.
"This cloud has certainly been a big concern for everyone across the game but, as we saw from the opening round, our men are dedicated to getting on with the business of winning football matches," Perry said.
"That remains our primary focus."
