SA lock Grobler tests positive in Currie Cup

Western Province Rugby have confirmed that lock Gerbrandt Grobler tested positive for a banned substance during the 2014 Absa Currie Cup tournament and been banned for two years.

Due to the sensitive nature of the allegations were unable to comment on the matter but reports surfaced revealing the matter.

Western Province Rugby Union say that Grobler signed an admission of guilt after choosing not to contest the case against him and, thus accept, the sanctions and punishment (a two-year ban) handed down to him for testing positive for the steriod, Drostanolone.

The WPRFU say that a remorseful Grobler has also taken full responsibility for his actions.

“WP Rugby has and will continue to educate its players about using only approved supplements, ” said the WPRFU in a statement.

“We will also continue to promote drug-free sport and assist the SA Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) wherever possible. “
