Posted by

West Wales Raiders forward Morgan Jefferies has been given a four ban after testing positive for a banned substance.

The test in question happened in February following the Raiders’ game against London Skolars.

Jefferies had tested positive for the steroid drostanolone and benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine.

The Welsh club have also announced they have ended his contract, but will offer support for the player.

They said in a statement: “The West Wales Raiders are disappointed that Morgan let his club and his teammates down during a difficult season and we fully support the ruling and outcomes enforced by the RFL and UKAD.

“The club has supported Morgan and his family throughout the process and we know that he is remorseful and he will pay a hefty price for his bad decisions.

“We hope to see him move forward and return to the field once his suspension has been served.”
