UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) has confirmed that Rugby League player Frankie Foster has been suspended from all sport for two years following an anti-doping rule violation.

Mr Foster tested positive for clomiphene following an in-competition test on 13 July. The player is banned from all competition from 14 August 2014 to 13 August 2016. The full written decision can be found under current rule violations.

Clomiphene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), is prohibited under category S.4 Hormone and Metabolic Modulators of the World Anti-Doping Code 2014 Prohibited List.

UKAD Director of Legal Graham Arthur said: “Young athletes and players must appreciate that they have the same responsibilities to clean sport as people competing at the highest level. They need to ensure that they understand the rules and exercise vigilance to be and stay clean.

“UKAD seeks to help athletes by providing online tools and resources, including for coaches and other sport personnel who can offer advice and support, to ensure that everyone is informed to make the right decision.”
