Wakefield prop Walker suspended for cocaine use

Wakefield Trinity prop forward Adam Walker has been suspended from all playing and training activity after testing positive for cocaine.

The drugs test came following Wakefield’s match against Widnes, in which Walker and the recently suspended Rangi Chase played in.

In the statement, the club said: “Wakefield Trinity received notification from UK Anti-Doping and the Rugby Football League today that Adam Walker tested positively for cocaine in a drugs test, following the recent fixture against Widnes Vikings.

“As a consequence, under Rugby Football League anti-doping regulations, he has been suspended from all training and playing activity.

“The Club fully respects this suspension and are currently reviewing this matter. There will be no further comment at this time.”
