WAFL player tests positive for drugs

West Australian Football League (WAFL) club East Perth have been engulfed in another drug scandal after a senior player tested positive to drugs.

The positive reading comes just a year after East Perth's Dean Cadwallader was handed a two-year ban for testing positive to anabolic steroid nandrolone.

The player to be caught up in the latest scandal won't be named until the B-sample test result has been conducted, which is expected from the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority by the end of the month.

It has been reported he tested positive to cocaine and steroids.

Swan Districts premiership player Travis Casserly is currently serving a two-year ban for testing positive to pseudoephedrine after the 2010 grand final.

The WAFL, which follows the anti-doping policy for football set by the AFL, released a statement stating: "... A State level competition must provide role model leadership for all young and aspiring players. It is therefore committed to a drug free football environment.

"To ensure player compliance, the WAFL has an education policy conducted in conjunction with Sports Medicine Australia and WAFL club staff.

"Further to this policy, a drug testing program has been adopted and administered in partnership with the State Government, which involves random testing across the League.

"This is endorsed by all nine WAFL clubs with the specific aim of eliminating drug use in the competition and setting an example across all levels of football."
