Warning Shots Fired As Another Rugby Player Is Banned For Steroid Use

Henley Rugby Club are in the spotlight for all of the wrong reasons again as a third player has been banned from the sport for 2 years after failing a drugs test. Previous charges were held against a winger and a fly-half who had all tested positive for banned substances.


A 24 year old named as Conner Stapley tested positive for traces of steroids whilst being a registered player.

Ill informed Stapley claimed he was taking a dietary weight loss supplement that was free of banned substances, this supplement was recommended to him by his brother as Stapley wanted to lose some weight.

However, methandienone and mesterolone was found in his sample after they were called in for a routine test.

The product known as T5 fat stripper was taken after he was concerned about recent weight gain, a three-man panel did agree it was unintentional but a suspension has been enforced.

The three-man panel agreed unanimously that the player had not taken the substances intentionally.

Whist it has been said that, “Henley RFC does not, under any circumstances, condone such actions and registered players are made aware of the dangers of doing so and the serious consequences of breaking these regulations.”

It does cast bad light on the club which seems to have a drug problem and drug misuse education appears to be lacking.
