    Wait why would Naden be looking at 2 years?

    I thought recreational drugs on first offence was a smaller suspension. Didn't Ben Barba get caught and face a smaller suspension they tried finding a loophole around?

    Pretty sure his was grand final night too after Sharks won the comp. Would miss half a season at worst I think unless he has been caught before. Or the rules have changed since 2016

    Cocaine is a performance enhancing drug if caught in your system within 48hrs of a game. (Wendell Sailor got 2 years for it)

    if it’s outside that window it’s treated differently.

    Barba tested positive 4 days after the GF

    Shit that's harsh if he gets on a drug after losing a game and cops a 2 to 4 year ban because he didnt get tested a few days later.

    Unless the implication is he was on the drug during the game... Not sure whether tested after the game means immediately or if it was hours later into next morning.

    If he were under the influence on the field 4 years is fair though. Also had a chuckle looking up Ben Barbas suspension. Michael Gordon talked out about him after it...

    They were potentially interviewing his supplier...

    Well Kilkenny you still got your boots in your day you where a dasher
    Naden will be suspended till the B sample comes back that will take 6 months at least. So we are down to maybe one center provided he stays
    Will this be enough to actually get the retention committee moving.Not likely

    I think the suggestion is he was on it during the game, as he was tested that night. I’d presume the test was conducted in the sheds.

    B Sample shouldn’t take 6 months?

    and besides, the B sample basically never changes the results. He’s gone.


    At least the club has clarity before all the players have signed contracts. Personally I’d love to bring Braidon Burns back, he might not have a starting spot at Souths.

    I wouldn’t hate that if he stays, but I personally doubt he’ll be here. They’ll probably do a player swap.

    Better off swapping him for a centre. Let him go early

    Maybe there’s an up & comer that’s worth a look? I dunno. I just doubt he’ll be here

    They can give us Averillo. He is a weapon

    It could mean Burton will stay for 2021 and play centre.

    Talk of Mansour hooking up with either Wests or the dogs.

    So chance another winger (cheaper) could be bought.

    This Averillo for Burton would be nice though.

    Capewell is quite cpable at centre too, especially if an off season with sprint coach is in the offering.

    So lots of options.

    Lol at the idea of players taking coke to increase performance.

    No. I actually suffer from depression, and I have for a while.
