Sharks centre Bronson Xerri returns positive B sample, handed official breach notice

Cronulla centre Bronson Xerri has returned a positive B sample for anabolic steroids, the NRL has confirmed.

The 19-year-old was provisionally suspended in May for using and possessing steroids banned under the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy.

Sport Integrity Australia has concluded its investigation and the NRL has served Xerri with a Notice of Alleged Anti-Doping Rule Violations, which he can now choose to respond to.

More to come.
