Club player hit with two-year drugs ban
November 11, 2013
Henley player Richard Briggs has received a two-year ban for an anti-doping violation.
Briggs tested positive for 19-norandrosterone (a metabolite of Nandrolone) and Oxandrolone - both anabolic androgenic steroids - in July this year, the RFU has announced.
He has been suspended by a disciplinary panel from August 10, 2013 until August 9, 2015.
The RFU said Briggs admitted the offence and agreed to the case being heard on papers without attending in person.
