CRONULLA'S SUPPLEMENTS SCANDAL

WHAT HAPPENED?

Cronulla players were allegedly exposed to an 11-week regime of injections, creams and tablets during the 2011 NRL season, which has come under scrutiny by ASADA.

WHAT SUBSTANCES ARE ALLEGEDLY INVOLVED?

Growth-hormone releasing substances, known as peptides.

Includes CJC-1295 and GHRP-6, both banned.

WHO ARE THE KEY FIGURES

* Stephen Dank. Sports scientist, painted as the supplement program's mastermind. Issued with show-cause notice over 34 alleged anti-doping breaches during his time at AFL club Essendon in 2012. Strongly denies any wrong doing.

* Trent Elkin. Cronulla's head of strength and conditioning during the 11-week period. Banned by the NRL for two years for negligence to player welfare in overseeing the program. Can return from December 15, provided he meets a range of strict conditions.

* Shane Flanagan. Cronulla coach. Banned for 12 months, ending September 17. Signed a contract extension in April to stay at the Sharks until 2017.

* Paul Gallen. Cronulla captain. One of 17 players from the 2011 squad and among just five still contracted to the club. Says he's "100 per positive" he's never taken a banned substance.
