One-year on from what was considered the “blackest day in Australian sport”, the Cronulla Sharks have been alerted to the news that a third player, Broderick Wright, has come forward seeking public liability compensation for damages sustained as a result of the supplements program run by Stephen Dank.
“It’s been a long and difficult time since details of the supplement program were revealed,” says Wright. “I have been troubled by the obvious abuse of trust by Cronulla, but what they put me through by subjecting me to the program and exposing us to unknown risks was just wrong and I feel I need to make it right.”
The decision of the former player to come forward and take legal action comes only seven days before Stephen Dank, one of the key figures in the investigation, is required to hand over any documents relating to the program to Shine Lawyers.
James Chrara, NSW general manager of Shine Lawyers, is representing all three of the former players in their bid to get compensation following damages to their health and reputation.
“It’s a privilege for Shine Lawyers to act for Broderick, Isaac and Josh in relation to their claims and right the wrongs committed by the Cronulla club and others,” Chrara said.
