WP Rugby confirms Grobler used banned steroid

DHL Western Province Stormers lock, Gerbrandt Grobler, tested positive for banned substances during the 2014 Currie Cup tournament, Western Province Rugby have confirmed.

"Up until now, given the sensitive nature of the allegations, WP Rugby was unable to comment on the matter," it said in a statement.

"However, as of this morning, Grobler signed an admission of guilt after choosing not to contest the case against him and thus accept the sanctions."

Grobler will most likely be facing a two year ban after he tested positive for the steroid Drostanolone, however, this has not yet been confirmed.

"WP Rugby has and will continue to educate its players about using only approved supplements. We will also continue to promote drug-free sport and assist the SA Institute for Drug-Free Sport wherever possible."
