Scotland Rugby League (SRL) is committed to and works closely with UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) to achieve and champion Clean Sport across the community game.
All sports, including Rugby League, are governed by the World Anti-Doping Code (WADA), and every participant is subject to the Scotland Rugby League and Rugby Football League Anti-Doping Rules. SRL adopts the UK Anti-Doping Rules pursuant to the RFL’s Operational Rules.
SRL condemns doping as it is harmful to the core values of the sport and is damaging to player’s health and wellbeing. In addition, the fairness, reputation and integrity of the competition is affected. SRL recognises that participants have a right to compete on a level playing field in a doping free environment.
In order to protect the game against doping, SRL works closely with UKAD and other relevant organisations in order to provide education, gather intelligence, administer results management, and carry out regular testing.
All SRL members will be subject to the RFL’s anti-doping disciplinary procedures.
It is the responsibility of all participants to promote anti-doping in Rugby League. If you are aware that a participant is doping, you can report this confidentially here.
