The drug is a non-steroidal anabolic substance that is common in body bag.
Segeyaro told journalists that he & # 39; was happy with how it went & # 39; and & # 39; was not entirely sure & # 39; what the next step was when he left the meeting.
Fuller told News Corp on Sunday that there was unintended and unintended doping and that there were mitigating circumstances that would form the basis for Segeyaro's defense.
& # 39; He was very cooperative and offered substantial help to ASADA & # 39 ;, Fuller told journalists.
He said that no date for the hearing had been set.
& # 39; It was a good interview process; "There is a fair way to go into this legislative process, but we will take the next step and see how we proceed," Fuller said.
According to ASADA policy, Segeyaro can have its B sample tested before a formal decision is made.
& # 39; The club is trying to contact our player, who is currently on holiday abroad, & # 39; read the Broncos statement.
