SYDNEY - Cronulla are facing legal action from a third former player after Broderick Wright's lawyers sent the club a letter informing them of his decision to sue for negligence, breach of contract and intentional tort.

Wright is following the lead of Josh Cordoba and Isaac Gordon in taking action against the Sharks for a period during the 2011 NRL season when controversial sports scientist Stephen Dank worked at the club.

"It's been a long and difficult time since details of the supplement program were revealed," Wright told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"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.

"I love rugby league and seeing the other guys come forward gave me strength to speak up too."

The decision comes just a week before Dank is required to hand over documents about his supplements program to lawyers.

Wright left the club at the end of the 2011 season and is now employed as a real estate agent, complained of stomach problems during the program and an independent investigation later revealed players were given peptides CJC-1295 and GHRP-6.

Gordon, who experienced the most severe side effects, suffering a mysterious blood-thinning disorder that left him with severe bruising from the ankle to the groin.
