Rioli provisionally banned under anti-doping code


West Coast Eagles premiership player Willie Rioli has been provisionally banned under the AFL's anti-doping code and will not play in the semi-final against Geelong on Friday night.

Rioli is accused of tampering with urine samples being collected by ASADA. He has not returned a positive drug test.

The AFL's general counsel Andrew Dillon described the incident as an "adverse analytical finding for urine substitution" and said it could carry a penalty as severe as a four-year ban.

The sample was taken on August 20, two days after the Eagles played Richmond in their round 22 clash at the MCG.

So do you think they havent checked his b sample in that time because it may also be tampered with? Seems odd he has been able to play for nearly a month. Why the delay?
