Cronulla is pushing the NRL to ramp up its fight against illicit drug use by introducing mandatory hair follicle testing.

The premiers have been hit hard by drug use in the past nine months, with star fullback Ben Barba and chairman Damian Keogh departing the club after separate cocaine scandals.

The Sharks' proposal would have all squad members and youth competition players older than 18 tested four times a year, News Corp Australia reports.
