Tuesday 12 February 2013 5:59 PM
The Newcastle Knights now has a much better understanding of the investigation currently being undertaken by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA).
Knights CEO Matt Gidley confirmed this, after a debriefing with the other NRL clubs and then a private briefing by ASADA.
"I am confident we have no issues of concern going forward,” Gidley said.
"While no specific details or players were mentioned by the ASADA representatives, they made it clear the Knights coaching staff and support team, and their procedures, were given the all clear.
"We are bound by a confidentiality agreement and can't go into details of the meeting but we now have a much better understanding of the process and we completely support what the NRL is doing."
Earlier in the day, NRL CEO Dave Smith confirmed the process would be time consuming and he couldn't give a timeframe on how long the investigations would take.
