Just had a look at the current list of sanctioned athletes on the UK Anti Doping website. The breakdown by sport for positive tests in the UK in the last twelve months is:

Rugby Union: 10 cases
Rugby League: 6 cases
Ice Hockey: 2 cases
Cycling: 1 case

Not a great reflection on Rugby (Union or League), when they account for 84% of sanctioned athletes. Why isnt this all over the papers?

To be fair, Ive read about 4 or 5 of them, and don't read the papers very often.

How often do you read the paper, properly?

And what about the two welsh athletes who tested positive?

Why are they not on that list?

Not sure about the Welsh athletes, was it in the last 12 months, thats as far back as i looked to be honest.

I have to admit i dont read the papers very much. I was more referring to why hadnt it been sensationalised by the media as they tend to do sometimes, and for the likes of a call for Rubgy to be withdrawn from school activities or something ridiculous.

Sadly a large number of failed tests in rugby are for recreational drugs.

There have been some lower level players done for gear (mainly in wales if I remember correctly).

Edit: just checked the lists and there seem to be plenty of guys failing for PEDS but I have no idea who any of them are so they're probably jokers - no major loss to the sport Grin

OF do you catch those in lower leagues so that it looks like you're testing properly? Kind of making them sacrificial lambs.

Nah I think the lower league guys have less to loose than the pro guys and probably use for aesthetic reasons above performance.

I honestly think Farah is clean...maybe im naive!?

with regards to the RL positives, as Bish has alluded to, a lot have been for recreationals...certainly the high profile ones (Hock for example)

I kinda think Farah is clean too, I just cant see it! I am aware at how that is a silly thing to say and that anyone could be using!
