    Today's SMH (15/11/13) has an article that states that six Roosters players had elevated blood readings for the banned substance human growth hormone. Noone from the club denied it, the only comment was that retesting showed normal levels. OK, how long after the elevated readings were identified, was the retest given? This whole story stinks, as does the Roosters club and the NRL for sweeping this mess under the carpet.

      Isn't this the same story that came out during the semis?

      This is a rehash of an old story - Roosters said that Polynesians naturally have high HGH :dodgy:

      Re-testing usually refers to a re-test of the original sample.

      I have heard that the mere presence of OMG SBW can cause elevated levels of HGH in mortals. The call it the OMGSBWHGHFAPFAP effect.

        They tried to test Shame, but they couldn't get a drop of blood out him.

        Hey, what's the difference between a vitamin and a hormone? You can't hear a vitamin.

          Sorry mate but I think you are on something yourself if you are going to buy into that.
          Yes maybe Red Pills before someone jumps in and says this :)
          One thing I am pretty sure of is that they are definitely cheating the cap.
