The South African Rugby Union (SARU) will appoint an Anti-Doping Tribunal to investigate an allegation of an anti-doping offence committed by Chiliboy Ralepelle and Bjorn Basson.

The players returned an adverse analytical finding for a prohibited stimulant, methylhexaneamine, following the match between South Africa and Ireland in Dublin on 6 November 2011.Both players asked for their ‘B’ sample to be tested, which confirmed the findings of the ‘A’ sample.

The players will not contest the testing procedures or related matters under the 2010 Autumn Internationals Anti-Doping Programme and therefore the investigation and hearing will be conducted in South Africa.

Investigations remain on-going and a date for the hearing, as well as the composition of the tribunal, will be announced once those have been completed in the new year.

  • So was Basson still a Griqua then or was he a Bull? If he is banned can the Bulls get their money back from Griquas?

  • Why is it a SARU tribunal? it was an international match not a domestic match.

  • @lostfish (Comment 2) :

    He was a Springbok. Claims, if any should rather be against SARU.

  • My money is on both of them coming off with only a warning. And I hope this matter is resolved before the Super 15 kicks off.

  • @chaz (Comment 5) : They`re both Bulls.

    I say minimum 4 year ban! :evil:

    Also I might mention , that since these two bokke are both bulls, they should test the rest of the bulls squad just in case . . . Who knows how long Pierre Spies have been getting away with this! :evil:

    Then bulls might be in a little trouble now that Mametsa is gone as well and they`ve allowed Chilla`s to go to Liiiiiiooooons !!! :mrgreen:
