Essendon 34's fate known within hours

AFTER nearly three years embroiled in supplements saga turmoil, Essendon's 34 past and present players will finally know their fate on Tuesday morning. 

The Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport is expected to deliver its verdict whether the Bombers took banned substance Thymosin Beta-4 during the 2012 season to the club around 7.30am AEDT. 

The AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal in March found insufficient evidence to declare the players guilty of doping offences, with that judgement appealed by the World Anti-Doping Authority. 

A three-man CAS panel heard the appeal in Sydney in November and their verdict will be final.
