The Advisory Committee unanimously agreed that the case should not be referred to a Board Appeal Committee for further consideration and, as a consequence, Mr. Tune remains eligible to continue playing.
The procedures followed by the IRB recognise that there are two separate and distinct issues relating to this matter. The Anti-Doping issue in relation to the player was, in the interests of fairness, treated as a priority, and has now been concluded.
The second aspect concerns the other events surrounding the matter. In this regard an enquiry will now be initiated into the background and circumstances of the case.
