$2500 court fine & no conviction recorded.
ARU then imposed $30k fine and 6 week ban.

So it wasn't a drug ring afterall? Just a one-off snort party with a sanction like that. :wtf:
Yep - he'll learn his lesson from that. :sarc::sarc::sarc::wtf:

I can't see WADA going along with only 6 weeks!

Time of offence would be important in this case?
If his season in AFL was over and out of contract and not yet signed by rugby, would he be considered not to come under the WADA umbrella?
Does his contract with AFL end with his final game of the season or would it have a specific date i.e. The day of the AFL grand final?

If this article is to be believed, this may be ended:

Most drugs stay in your system and will be detected if you're tested in the 3 months following the use of said drugs (or so we were told at our mandatory varsity drug info session). So even if he was out of contract, I wouldn't be surprised if he got a "random" drug test in the next week or 2 now that he is on contract.

Pretty sure he will be at the front of the line whenever ASADA turn up to test the Reds players during the season

I believe cocaine is a quick flusher. Metabolites in the blood 24-48 hours, urine around 5 days and can be longer in frequent/heavy users, not 3 months. I looked it up after Matt Stevens, so if you're an infrequent user you can pretty much get away with it most of the time, unless you're unluckily tested in the few days after.

Although actually I remember something to do with hair follicles being longer - do these get tested?
