Anti-Doping

INTRODUCTION

The Welsh Rugby Union ("WRU") 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.
