Annual Report

The Anti-Doping & Illicit Drugs Programme Annual Report provides a full account of the activities of the RFU and its anti-doping partners in a dedicated report. A commitment to report publicly on the anti-doping and illicit drugs programmes came partly as a component of the illicit drugs programme that started in the 2010/11 season.

The report includes details of how rugby union in England strives to combat doping through collaborative partnerships with the Rugby Players’ Association, Premiership Rugby, UK Anti-Doping and World Rugby. The RFU and its partners take anti-doping extremely seriously, something that is reflected in the level of investment in anti-doping in the game as a whole.
