The NRL have conceded it needs to improve its ability to cover up drug incidents after a recent spate of cases.
Speaking at a media conference at the Ivy nightclub, NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said it was unfortunate people had found out about recent incidents.
"We need to work more closely with the illicit drug industry to keep drug use out of the media."
"We've already reached out to the distributors, the street dealers, the shadier elements of the NSW police force, and the nightclubs."
Mr Greenberg conceded the NRL is behind the AFL when it comes to keeping illicit drug use out of the media.
"The AFL invests millions of dollars in their cover up unit each year. Unfortunately, our cover up unit is just a guy called Barry, who we recently discovered is on the sherbet himself."
When asked if the NRL should try to stop players taking illicit drugs like cocaine, Mr Todd laughed for several minutes.
"Yeah, let's address a societal problem through a sporting competition. Stopping a bunch of young, men with high disposable incomes, who have the run of the town should be really easy."
“I should have that wrapped up by next week. Do you want me to sort out the Middle East the week after?”
