Kelly and Aiton to sue Cronulla

Paul Aiton, Albert Kelly and Dean Collis are suing Cronulla for negligence over the 2011 supplements program, according to reports.

Aiton, Kelly and Collis have joined three other ex-Sharks players in legal action against the club, Fairfax Media states.

The action refers to the period in 2011 when sports scientist Stephen Dank ran a controversial supplements program at the NRL outfit.

Kelly and Aiton are two of five former Sharks players who declined a “doped and duped” deal with ASADA that saw many of their teammates serve a three-game suspension in 2014, and now face a potential two-year ban.

Kelly played 14 games for Cronulla from 2010-2011, Aiton 36 games from 2010-2011 and Collis 24 games from 2010-2011.

The five ex-Sharks players, which includes former Catalans centre Ben Pomeroy, have been served with infraction notices.

The players can either accept the breach, which is likely to be a two-year suspension, or declare an intention to fight the charge and appear before the NRL‘s Anti Doping Tribunal.
