The Cronulla Sharks reputation has been put on the line again with a further nine cases of illegal drug use among key players this year.

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) found more than 30 cases of positive substance use by NRL players, but Cronulla topped the list.

The club is still undergoing legal settlements relating to reported drug abuse in 2011 and have since dismissed a number of club officials as a result of the findings.

Since the dismissals trainer Mark Noakes, manager Darren Mooney, team doctor David Divney and physiotherapist Konrad Schultz have been reinstated.

The Sharks remain sixth on the Telstra Premiership ladder ahead of the Canterbury Raiders.
