AUSTRALIA’s leading sports doping official has slammed reports the Wests Tigers and Manly Sea Eagles are secretly increasing their oxygen intake.

The Tigers raised eyebrows during a training session on Tuesday when captain Robbie Farah and injured forwards John Skandalis and Keith Galloway were photographed wearing bizarre oxygen masks attached to small tanks.

Manly were also linked to the same type of oxygen training, although coach Des Hasler refused to comment on the issue yesterday.

Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority chief Richard Ings told The Daily Telegraph last night that he did not believe the Tigers or Sea Eagles were breaching any part of the world anti-doping code.
