The Cronulla Sharks have been issued a warning.
The ASADA investigation of the Cronulla NRL club has already caused the club to lose five staff members, including coach Shane Flanagan and chairman Damian Irvine.
However according to news.com.au it has been revealed that the Sharks have not allowed ASADA access to any of its players and only a few of their coaching staff, despite the heavy spotlight currently on the club.
Sports Minister Kate Lundy met with NRL chief executive Dave Smith and chairman John Grant over the lack of cooperation by the Cronulla club.
Five of the six clubs named by ASADA as under investigation in relation to practices of illegal doping have allowed ASADA to brief players on their rights. However, the Sharks refused.
The Australian Federal government, under Prime Minister Julia Gillard, have pledged ten additional anti-doping investigators for the ASADA doping inquiry.
The additional staff will allow the investigation to be carried out quicker and more efficiently according to the Prime Minister.
The opposition leader Tony Abbott has accused the government of using the investigation to create headlines with having hard evidence to back up the allegations.
The senate is expected to begin debate next week on legislation put forward by the Labor government to beef up powers for ASADA. Labor is trying to secure the passage of the bill, and yesterday met with the Greens and ASADA to better explain the proposed measures.
