      There seems to be a big link between rugby players and the Bolivian marching powder.

      Another headache for ROG at Racing with Williams.

      I'm a bit more shocked about O'Connor. He's only a young fella and I reckon any hopes of a Wallaby return will now be over.

        I think Williams' retired but this could have consequences for O'Connor who's been a bold boy already. Looking at a two year ban if previous is anything to go by.

          Interesting reactions to Williams apology Ali Williams twitter feed

          Most are supportive, it's only gear, just a bit of coke, etc etc with just a couple of posters taking him on and asking if this was his first mistake ie his first time buying.
          Has Fineen put Johnny down yet?

            I don't think Irish people can moralise on the use of coke for example considering how prevalent the use is here.

              Some people living in the same country as me have done something, therefore my capacity to have an opinion about it has been annulled.
              Tis but a scratch.

                I'm not sure how you conflate the prevalency of illegal drug taking in Ireland and having the right to "moralise' one way or another. Personally, I'm astonished-read disgusted- at the amount of support on that feed.

                  John Hardie stood down by Edinburgh for alleged drug use. He didn't fail any competition drug testing apparently.

                        Luckily there's not a drugs problem in rugby!

                          I'm not naive enough to think that there isn't an issue with drugs in rugby but don't the majority of the guys getting busted all seem to be coming out of SA.

                            The majority of the elite ones anyway. I remember, a few years ago at least, there were more positives in Welsh amateur rugby than any other sport in the UK. We can only rely on the strength of the drug testing regime in any case - a lot of positives in one place doesn't necessarily mean it's more prevalent there, just that it's caught more.

                              True enough, am I correct in saying that the testing in Ireland is considered fairly rigorous? Or is that just a narrative that's out there because of the lack of positive tests at the higher levels?
