Quite a bit of mud being thrown from the featherstone area at leigh on this subject, hope they are not leaving themselves open to court cases
My limited understanding is that the club gets told of any problems and the players aren't selected until B samples are tested. Hence why the clubs know about failures first, the early accusations centred on players who didn't play v Salford but it seems that they are in this weeks 19 with the exception of moimoi who has been in a knee brace since Easter and pesky who is going in for an operation and will be out for. 8 weeks

Both player and club will be told of a positive after the A sample test but they would not be suspended if banned until the results of the B are available

Any none picking would be a club/ player decision

Yeah but you only have to miss the tests where you're going to test positive.

Then you get targeted random testing

B samples are only tested if the A sample produces a positive

Results are usually back fairly quickly - it will depend on w.hat SLA the RFL have in place with the Testers

To be fair to him there were a few in before him that time and it didn't look like he was one of the aggressors.

But he did run the best part of 30-40 metres to get involved
