As part of World Rugby’s ongoing Keep Rugby Clean education and awareness programme campaign, the organisation has released a new website to maximise the quality of education and information available to Unions.
The website is a new central hub for anti-doping news and information in rugby, containing all of World Rugby’s education and information materials as well as all historical statistical reports.
The website is interactive, easy to use, mobile optimised, and is available in English, French, Spanish and Japanese, with many of the materials contained on the site translated into additional languages.
Players and team staff at all levels, as well as members of the public, can use the website to inform themselves about the latest anti-doping news. It is also a one-stop shop for important information and resources around nutrition and supplements, prohibited substances, testing procedures, and much more.
World Rugby Director of Anti-Doping and Game Research, Mike Earl, said: “The new website marks another significant milestone in World Rugby’s ongoing player welfare drive, and our aims to support our participants and stakeholders with the highest possible quality education and information.
"Anti-doping is a critical knowledge area for players and their support staff. The website supports them and anyone who wants to keep up with anti-doping issues in the game by providing a wide range of content in an easy to access format. Alongside our new e-learning modules and annual education programme, the new website will help strengthen our efforts to keep rugby clean.”
