Top 14 player fails drugs test
April 3, 2012
Brive have announced that fullback Julien Caminati has been suspended by the French Rugby Federation after failing a drugs Test.
The AFP reports that the 26-year-old tested positive for cannabis. The Top 14 Orange side released a statement claiming that they found out about the fullback's suspension on Monday. The club added that they "totally support this decision".
The club said in a statement that the suspension "follows a random anti-doping test carried out on February 18, with the report of the analysis carried out by the French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD) flagging up an abnormal result".
And the beleaguered Top 14 side sounded a note of caution to the player saying that if he "is found guilty after disciplinary hearings, they reserve the right to decide what action to take".
