After making a good impression on the pitch comes this  https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/66628637" rel="nofollow - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/66628637  

Hope it turns out to be something and nothing.

The more worrying issue is it’s claimed the WRU supplied him with a supplement which returned the positive result.

That allegation has been removed it seems- libellous really. I hope it’s not true and innocent until proven guilty. It would be a sad way to end a good career

Ah ok, didn’t see that but usually they’re a very reliable paper so will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Anyone who doesn’t think it’s rife in the modern game is living in cloud cuckoo land. 
Unfortunately it’s huge problem with teenage boys in Wales, which is having huge detrimental affect on behaviours and education.

BTW, Biarritz lost 55-0 away to Valence Romans who normally struggle to stay up and are newly/once again, promoted for this season.

Excuse my naivety, but it appears he tested positive for a growth hormone.
Didn't Webb stop growing some 15 years ago and whoever his dealer was, is collecting money for nothing. Thought Webb was cleverer than this.

Growth hormone isn't only found in children. Adults produce it as well although less and in declining amounts from middle age onwards.

As an illegal supplement, it enhances muscle formation, energy levels eg for tour de france cyclists, and recovery time.

The ‘ B ‘sample is being tested to ensure no procedural errors.

The Welsh media are treading quite lightly around this at the moment.

The Worry for Wales, the players who participated in the summer fitness camp and the WRU, is the suggestion in the French media that the supplement was provided by Wales management. 
That could have huge implications for team Wales, the Scarlets and the other teams who have provided players.

Yeah, I think that’s untrue really.

Webb retired from international rugby on 31st May. The test was on 14th July. The half life of growth hormone is a matter of hours, less than a day. So after a week, only a very small amount remains, 1/500 th or thereabouts and less than Webb produces himself. After 6 weeks...... Some of the by-products might have a longer half life and it is those that the test has supposedly picked up.

However, the french need to be very careful about their allegations or else the WRU might find a way of solving their financial problems.

It needs dealing with asap for the sake of everyone involved. All decent minded fans hope it’s a technical error or there is a good reason on how it happened.

The French rugby media love stirring the pot.
Especially just before a World Cup.

It makes it all the more exciting (for the journalists that is).

My guess: storm + teacup.
But you've only to look at my results predictions to see I'm rubbish at guessing, most of the time.

I believe Webbs test was carried out by the French anti doping agency. I’d guess the Welsh plyers will be tested during the RWC.
