Scotland Rugby Player doesn’t fail doping test, fills in form wrong

News is just breaking that a Scotland Rugby Union player has failed a drugs test of some sort. As if things weren’t bad enough… anyway we’ll avoid unhealthy (and possibly actionable) speculation and bring you more news as we get it, so keep an eye out!

UPDATE: The BBC are reporting that a player has been retrospectively cleared following some sort of form-filling mix up. So we can all put our toys back in the pram now, it just seems like a bureaucratic bungle rather than anything malicious.

UPDATE: Apparently the player involved is Scott Macleod (who is asthmatic) the incident revolves around special dispensation (a T.U.E, or Therapeutic Use Exemption) to use different types of inhaler, and it has already been cleared up to the satisfaction of UK Sport and an independent judicial committee.
