Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi faces a four-year ban from rugby after his B urine sample tested positive for ‘multiple anabolic steroids and metabolites’.

SA Rugby Magazine reports that The South African Institute for Drug Free Sport has confirmed that Aphiwe Dyantyi’s B-sample has tested positive for banned substances.
"Dyantyi's B sample has come back positive for anabolic steroids & metabolites. The specifics of which are as follows: - metandienone - methyltestosterone - LGD-4033 

Dyantyi has now been formally charged with a doping offence for multiple anabolic steroids and metabolites.

According to https://rugbyrocks.com, Dyantyi was tested on 2 July during a Bok training camp and informed by the South African Institute for Drug Free Sport (Saids) on 13 August that his A sample tested positive for a prohibitive substance.

Dyantyi exercised his right to have his B sample analysed.

The B sample was tested at the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) accredited laboratory at the University of the Free State, which confirmed the A-sample results of the presence of the banned substances: metandienone, methyltestosteroneand LGD-4033.


Dyantyi has been formally charged with a doping offence for multiple anabolic steroids and metabolites. He has the decision of either accepting the charge and sumbitting a plea for a reduced sanction or contesting the charge before an independent tribunal panel.

According to Saids, Dyantyi has the right to contest the charge before an independent tribunal panel. If he disputes the charge and pleads not guilty, a hearing will be set down within the next four weeks, and he will be required to provide evidence that can prove his innocence. The independent tribunal panel will then adjudicate over the proceeding and hand down a decision.
