The NRL have released their preliminary findings and provisional punishments for Cronulla Sharks involvement in doping. The Sharks will be fined 1 million dollars, coach suspended for a year and head of conditioning banned for life.

Is what has occurred exclusively an NRL problem, or could one day something similar crop up in SuperLeague?

Just to clarify, I don't think these fines are saying that Cronulla are guilty of using banned substances, just that they didn't have safeguards in place to prevent it. The ASADA report is due soon
