Channel Nine has named Canberra Raiders winger Sandor Earl a one of the players being investigated by ASADA for the use of performance enhancing drugs.
Channel Nine claims that Earl is under investigation from an incident that allegedly occurred during his time with the Penrith Panthers in which it is claimed the player sought treatment of shoulder injuries he had sustained at the time and was treated with peptides.
It is claimed that these treatments were sought out by Earl himself and they occurred without the knowledge of the Penrith Panthers club. Earl becomes the first player to be named publicly by the media.
Earl played for the Penrith Panthers between 2010 and 2012 before moving to the Canberra Raiders last season.
He recently signed a contract to play French Rugby Union in 2014. If Earl was suspended by ASADA that would effect any deal he has to play Rugby Union as suspensions are honoured across both sports.
