Senior News Corp journalists Brent Read and David Riccio tweeted the news on Tuesday.

Riccio said Xerri has had his phone confiscated by ASADA.

The NRL confirmed the news in a release.

“The (NRL) has provisionally suspended Cronulla Sharks player Bronson Xerri under the NRL’s Anti-Doping Policy.

“The Suspension Notice asserts Xerri returned a positive A-sample for exogenous Testosterone, Androsterone, Etiocholanolone and 5b-androstane-3a,17b-diol.”

Xerri will have his B sample tested.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s Michael Chammas says Xerri is facing a four-year ban.
The Sharks are due to play the Tigers in Round 3 on Sunday.



Cronulla superstar Bronson Xerri is facing a possible multi-year ban from the NRL after testing positive to a number of banned substances last November.

Xerri was today provisionally suspended under the NRL's Anti-Doping Policy.

Roosters loss really - another who was basically booked to join 2021 and on...
Sharks have a few of these stories, but somehow the years leading up to...and after...the GF win, which remarkably was the 1 season they were clean ??? hmmm

Sharks and doping is a secret love affair that has been going on for years now. Just fold them up and give the licence to an expansion club, they are a blight on the game.

Beggars belief! What a waste of such a talented player who didn't need any 'enhancing'.

Sharkies will regret releasing Morris now and I daresay there goes their season.

Just an aside .... how good is it that the story was a media release from the NRL ... rather than in the past it would have been a personal edict from a Grandstanding GreenTurd .... look at me, look at me ...

The cult of Personality is dead ....

He is a defensive liability, I'd have liked to have seen him up against Suli.

The media talked him up last year because he was excited at making his debut in 1st grade. I thought that was pretty lame.

The down side is ... that with Xerri and Morris off their books ... and Dugan likely to follow .... they will have a motza to spend on a new centre .... Suli ?

Yeap, another talented player lost to a mistake.

... and the gummies wonder why we think they are drug cheats.
