Rugby Football Union (RFU) v Kurt Brown

Rugby Football Union (RFU) v Kurt Brown

A decision in the case of Rugby Football Union (RFU) v Kurt Brown has been published by the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP).

On 1 February 2020 Mr Kurt Brown, a rugby union player registered with Lydney RFC, provided a urine Sample In-Competition at a fixture against Sidmouth RFC. The urine Sample returned an Adverse Analytical Finding for Nadrolone, 19-norandrosterone and 19-noretiocholanolone. Mr Brown was subsequently charged on 13 March 2020 with a breach of Article 21.2.1 of the World Rugby Regulations for the Presence of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers in his Sample.

The NADP Tribunal, consisting of William Norris QC, Professor Isla Mackenzie and Colin Murdock found that Mr Brown had committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation contrary to Article 21.2.1 and therefore imposed a period of Ineligibility of four years, running from 13 March 2020 until midnight on 12 March 2024.

The National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) is the United Kingdom’s independent tribunal responsible for adjudicating anti-doping disputes in sport. It is operated by Sport Resolutions and is entirely independent of UK Anti-Doping who is responsible for investigating, charging and prosecuting cases before the NADP.
