Scottish Rugby player Sean Goodfellow issued 4 year suspension

On 02 August 2018 Sean Goodfellow, a registered player of Scottish Rugby Union, was selected to provide an Out-of-Competition sample.  Mr Goodfellow was present at his home address when a UKAD Doping Control Officer attended to carry out the test, however Mr Goodfellow refused to give a sample.  He was subsequently charged with an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) for evading Sample collection, or without compelling justification refusing or failing to submit to Sample collection under World Rugby Regulation 21.2.3.

Mr Goodfellow admitted the ADRV was committed intentionally and agreed to accept a 4 year Period of Ineligibility.  Mr Goodfellow’s ban will run from 02 January 2019,  the date of Provisional Suspension, until midnight on 01 January 2023.

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.
