League Notes: NRL Roosters Sack Nutrition Company After Drugs Found In Blood Tests
National Rugby League club Sydney Roosters has admitted it "sacked a sports nutrition company after players' blood tests returned elevated readings for the banned substance Human Growth Hormone." Details of the blood tests' results for six players showing elevated levels of HGH "were found on the phone of an organised crime figure that was seized by law enforcement officers" (THE AGE, 9/26). ... It is set to be "a full-blown revolt" but the Indian Boxing Federation's state units have still invited the suspended body's president and secretary-general to attend its Oct. 6 meeting "despite the duo's attempts to stop the gathering from taking place" (PTI, 9/24).
