UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) has confirmed that Welsh Rugby Union player Nick Clancy has been suspended from all sport for two years following an anti-doping rule violation.

Mr Clancy, a registered player with Bonymaen RFC, tested positive for metabolites of three anabolic agents, stanozolol, nandrolone and drostanolone, following an out-of-competition test on 14 August. The athlete is banned from all sport from 4 September 2014 to 3 September 2016. The full written decision can be found under current rule violations.

UKAD Director of Legal Graham Arthur said: “The 2015 World Anti-Doping Code deals severely with those who, like Nick Clancy, choose to intentionally dope. Next year, any athlete deliberately seeking to performance enhance will automatically be handed a four-year ban.”
