The National Rugby League (NRL) has tonight provisionally suspended Brisbane Broncos player James Segeyaro under the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy.
The Provisional Suspension Notice asserts that Mr Segeyaro returned a positive A-sample for di-hydroxy LGD-4033 which is prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy. He was tested by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) on 3 September, 2019.
Mr Segeyaro is prohibited from participating in any WADA compliant sport, including rugby league, while the provisional suspension is in place.
Under the Anti-Doping Policy, Mr Segeyaro now has the opportunity to have his B-sample analysed.
ASADA advised the NRL of the finding late this afternoon.
The NRL has spoken with Mr Segeyaro and advised him of support services.
The NRL will not be making further comment while the ASADA investigation is underway.
