Rugby League player receives sanction

The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) today acknowledged the decision of the Queensland Rugby League (QRL) to sanction athlete Cade Maloney for the presence and use of a prohibited substance. Mr Maloney returned an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) from an out-of-competition doping control test on 15 August 2019.

His sample was analysed at the Australian Sports Drug Testing Laboratory, part of the National Measurement Institute, which detected the presence of Higenamine. The QRL imposed a two-year ban on Mr Maloney commencing on 17 September 2019.

Mr Maloney is ineligible to participate in any sports that have adopted a World Anti-Doping Code compliant anti-doping policy until 17 September 2021. He is also not permitted to compete in a non-signatory professional league, or event organised by a non-signatory International or National level event organisation.
