NORTH Queensland Cowboys prop Mitchell Sargent has been sacked from the NRL club after returning a positive test to cocaine.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal Sargent returned a positive in-house test to the recreational drug earlier this month.

The Cowboys have torn up Sargent’s contract and his future in the NRL remains unclear.

The Country Origin prop’s future remains unclear with the NRL expected to impose the mandatory two-year ban on Sargent.

The NRL has been informed of the positive drug test and a spokesman said the Cowboys would issue a press release later today.

Sargent is the first NRL player since’s Manly’s Andrew Walker in 2004 to test positive to a recreational drug.

The positive drug test is the latest drama for the Cowboys who have slipped from grand finalists last year to missing the cut for the top eight in 2006.

Its because Mata and Sargent have a lot in common.

They both got caught with 50 kg of crack down their pants

Looks like Mitch will be back playing with the Canowindra Pythons next year.

Sargent will be playing for an NRL team next year. I'm actually fairly confident of that.

I think you are right Doug, but he still would have had a top night out I reckon!

The 2 year ban does not apply as this was not an "official" ASDA test. As the test was conducted "out of compitition" and as an "in house" test Sargent will be free to play for any club next season.
