Give drug­gies saya year

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

LEAGUE Im­mor­tal Bob Ful­ton on has backed Kan­ga­roo coach Mal Meninga’s zero tol­er­ance e stance on il­licit drugs in the NRL. He wants play­ers banned ed for a full sea­son, even for a firstst of­fence.

“Play­ers get more drug ed­u­ca­tioni now th than ever be­fore,” the Manly Sea Ea­gles boss said. “Twelve months for a first of­fence — straight out bang — a year on the side­lines.

“They’re not teenage kids, they are sea­soned first-graders.

“They’ve got to do it and the play­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tion should be sup­port­ing it.”
