Wigan forward fails drugs test

Wigan forward Gabe Hamlin has been suspended by the Rugby Football League after failing a drugs test.

He becomes the latest in an ever-growing list of Warriors players to be hit by off-field controversy.

Hamlin, 22, joined the Super League champions from South Sydney Rabbitohs in October 2017.

Chairman Ian Lenagan has stated that the club will support the player until the conclusion of the UK anti-doping process.

The club statement reads: 

Wigan Warriors can confirm that they have been informed by the Rugby Football League (RFL) that Gabriel Hamlin has been charged with a UK anti-doping violation and has been provisionally suspended by the RFL pending the conclusion of the case.

Hamlin is currently on a flight back to his native Australia and will not be available for selection whilst subject to the suspension.

Chairman, Ian Lenagan: “Wigan Warriors will look to support Gabriel throughout this process until it’s conclusion and thereafter. Gabriel has requested to be closer to his family during this difficult time and we fully support this request.”
