UPDATE: A number of past and present Sharks players have been offered one-year suspensions - back-dated to November 1 2013 - if they admit taking banned substances.

SEVENTEEN players from Cronulla’s 2011 squad have been handed show cause notices by ASADA. So where are they now and what does it mean to them?

THE timeline of the drama which started back in February 2013 on what was described as the “blackest day in Australian sport”.

TWO clubs, two codes, two investigations with plenty of parallels. Here’s how the ASADA probe played out at Cronulla compared with Essendon.

CRONULLA captain Paul Gallen is desperate for closure on the scandal surrounding him and his club but says if he accepts a ban his reputation will be ruined.
