No more positive tests for Boks

In a rare piece of good news, all six of the Springbok players who were tested for banned substances after the Scotland test on Saturday have returned negative test results.

In a not-completely-surprising, albeit unprecedented move, six South Africans were tested at Murrayfield – that’s three times more than the normal number. Although nobody was prepared to say so on the record, the positive tests returned by Chilliboy Rallepele and Bjorn Basson after the Ireland test, coupled with admissions from the Bok management team that hey had no idea what could have caused those results, must have been factors leading to the organising body’s decision to test so many players.

“In accordance with IRB Regulation 21 and the Autumn Internationals Rules, Six Nations Rugby carried out a number of target tests at the Scotland v South Africa match on 20 November 2010.

The samples collected during those target tests were analysed by a laboratory accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

The laboratory today informed Six Nations Rugby that none of the samples collected at the Scotland v South Africa match returned a positive result,” Six Nations Rugby Limited said in a statement.

    Pity it was not the only result that was negative from last Saturday.
