South Africa coach Matt Proudfoot defends doping controls

South Africa assistant coach Matt Proudfoot has defended the team’s doping controls after Aphiwe Dyantyi’s positive drug test.
Lions wing Dyantyi and springboks, 25, could face a four-year prohibit after both his B and A pee samples last month returned results that are positive for anabolic steroids, but coach Proudfoot defended the drugs testing schedule of his group.
He said:”We’re tested each week, probably six players are tested within an off-day each week until the camps we have been on, right the way throughout the Super Rugby tournament.
“I understand why the narrative is there, however, severe testing is done of this group, and that is the group I’m accountable for.
“Medicine testing needs to be functioning, that’s a world sporting dilemma.”
Proudfoot said events on the field should judge the rugby of South Africa.
He added:”If you take a close take a look at our Sevens team competing on the world stage, our side third in the world, that the Springboks competing well, the women’s team too.
“So that is the image of South African rugby which needs to be achieved.
“But obviously doping in sport is something that should be continually addressed.”
Their World Cup bid opens against defending champions New Zealand at Yokohama.
