Thomas Minns suspended for 16 months

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) today confirmed that Thomas Minns must serve a 16-month suspension following an Anti-Doping Rule Violation.

Minns tested positive for the presence of benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, after Hull KR’s Super League game at Huddersfield Giants on March 15, 2018.

UKAD have ruled that the suspension began on that date, and Minns will therefore be available to compete again from July 15 – and to resume training from May 15.

The full written decision can be found on the UKAD website.
