Rugby player given three-year ban for using steroids
A rugby player has been suspended from all sport for three years for taking steroids.Christopher Edwards, 29, who plays for Tredegar in WRU League Two East, committed two violations for the possession and sue of anabolic steroids. The UK Anti-Doping organisation says he committed two violations for the possession and use of anabolic steroids. He’s been banned from all competition until April 2017.
Here, the panel recognised the player possessed and used a substance containing multiple anabolic steroids and this, combined with his failure to promptly admit the violations, has led to an aggravated suspension of three years.

An investigation was launched after Mr Edwards offences were reported by a member of the public. http://www.itv.com/news/wales/update/2014-07-07/rugby-player-given-three-year-ban-for-using-steroids/
