Webb to attend meeting

Rhys Webb is set to attend a meeting with the French Anti-Doping Agency today after recording a positive drugs test for a growth hormone.

The news emerged over the weekend, with the club president of Biarritz confirming that the scrum-half had contacted him last week to show him a letter he had received from the agency.

Today’s meeting, Jean-Baptiste Aldigé said, was to explain the results of the test.

“Rhys came to me on Monday and he showed me the letter from the French Anti-Doping Agency,” Biarritz president Aldigé told MailSport. “The letter said Rhys was positive for some products. He has to attend a meeting on Monday with them.

“It’s not a court hearing. At this stage, he is not guilty. The meeting is just to explain the results.

“As club president, I am waiting for the result. The test result was last Monday. The test was on July 14. Rhys was the one to receive the test results.

“As a club, we are not involved. After the meeting on Monday, the decision will be made whether to go to court or not. As soon as you get a strange result, you are provisionally suspended as a player.”
