Anti Doping Presentation

As part of the clubs continued commitment to player / coaching development we will be running a WRU approved anti doping seminar at the clubhouse on Thursday 11th January at 6.30pm.

All Senior players are invited to attend before training.

Below is an extract from the WRU's introduction to doping presentation: 

The Welsh Rugby Union condemns doping in rugby and is committed to the fight against doping in sport. It is completely against the integrity of the sport of rugby football.

The WRU Anti-Doping Rules are the UK Anti-Doping Rules and are compliant with World Rugby Regulation 21 (Anti-Doping), and the World Anti-Doping Code.

There is no room in the New Code for carelessness or not knowing, and all players are encouraged to check the prohibited lists which include over-the-shelf medication and supplements.

The WRU recognises the importance of testing, both in-competition or out of competition, which protects the integrity of the sport and provides a deterrent against the temptation to dope.

The WRU also recognises the importance of education to establish an environment which influences doping free behaviour amongst players and support staff and minimises the risk of inadvertent doping.

The WRU -
- appointed UK Sport as its National Anti-Doping Organisation, UK Anti-Doping is the successor to UK Sport.
- Are obliged by World Rugby to make Anti-Doping regulations
- Is a member of and subject to the anti-doping jurisdiction if the World Rugby (Regulation 21)
