New Zealand Rugby League Inc v Timoti Broughton


Anti-doping – cannabis – recreational use at party – admitted violation – had signed participation agreement acknowledging he was aware of NSO’s anti-doping policy – however, there were mitigating circumstances justifying penalty at lower end of range – had been provisionally suspended and missed a number of matches – match in which he was drug tested was first Bartercard cup game (only a few days after signed participation agreement) and had not received the usual pre-season education on NSO’s anti-doping policy that other more experienced players had received – one month’s ineligibility imposed which was to commence from date of decision.
