Supporting Sid 

Were the club aware of the 'goings on' which I doubt but were the DOR and Coaching staff aware of what was happening

I agree that this kind of enhancement is possible and kept away from the club executive but  the game side of the club must have had knowledge of the miscreants when 3 players were involved. It is . also interesting that an foreign international was involved. was he who introduced the options to local kads

OP i doubt very much the game side were aware. One of the bans was for driving one of the guilty away from the testing  not taking anything. I am disappointed by your little englander slur on foreign players. Whilst he qualified and played for Romania through ancestry he was brought up in and played for a variety of English clubs. Sadly just an example of individuals thinking they can break the rules and get away with it- no apologist for this behaviour but ultimately far less dangerous to others than those who enjoy a few beers at the rugby club and then drive home.

Marigold,
Would you not agree that generally, a player would 'avoid' being tested for one reason only?

I don't think OP made any 'slur' against foreign players. OP said 'foreign international'. I believe that OP was referring to the higher level of rugby played by that individual, which may in turn have seen him need to remain at a higher level of fitness. In his case, through the use of banned substances. 
This player was a prolific try scorer at Levels 4 & 5. We now know he 'cheated'. How would you feel if this 'cheat' had scored a number of tries against your club in a level 5 match? 
I agree that this is a sad state of affairs but to say that this 'cheating' is less dangerous than drink driving is strange indeed. I don't see the comparability?

The use of enhancement substances are prevalent at move levels....

within a game that relies on players having such a quick turnaround after the punishment the body takes on a Saturday afternoon, It is not possible for the body to recover the required amount between games let alone adding team training and also Personal training on top of that

TT you know as well as most this is the case, however I understand you always missed legs day Wink
