The South Sydney Rabbitohs are aware of an NRL notice of contravention that has been issued to player Kirisome Auva’a following a second breach of the NRL’s Testing Policy for illicit and hazardous substances. Auva’a did not return a positive test for an illicit or hazardous substance, but contravened the rules as set out in the NRL Policy.

The player had until 4pm today (Wednesday) to lodge an appeal. Neither Auva’a nor his representatives have chosen to do so.

The Rabbitohs will be following a process; in conjunction with the NRL, RLPA and the player; regarding possible sanctions, rehabilitation and support. This will be discussed at a Football Club Board meeting next week.

The Rabbitohs will not be making any further comment at this time.
