The whole drug testing is BS, how often is it random. There are players that would be on drugs every weekend and party hard. COVID times might have slowed that. But look at Joey and rumours of Lockyer.
Barba was caught after GF in what’s pretty tough but he also had priors. You’d bet your house that any Grand final side winner or loser would be on it. Smart clubs like Roosters would hide them away from ASADA.
Its just interesting to see what the penalty will be, Walsh is a 19 yr old that fronted up.
Here we have the Australian no. 6 with all the nrls education under his belt. We had big fines for Pearce and Vaughn for off field. Have to see where this sits
Webcke wrote extensively in his book about the Broncos internal drug testing regime being much tougher than the NRLs. Apparently it was pretty common to be tested on bye weekends, or to have someone knock on his door at 3am the morning after a game.
That was a while ago though - and it was just the testing. The club could always sweep it under the rug I guess.
