So says everyone’s favourite hypobolic tweeter Eliota Fuimano-Sapolu: https://www.ruck.co.uk/international-rugby-star-reveals-loads-players-cocaine/

His feed is even more fun nowadays than when he was playing(!): https://mobile.twitter.com/Eliota_Sapolu

Rugby players on coke and PEDS?

Not that shocking.

I'm sure if the allegations are unfounded they will sue.

I'm so glad the OP capitalised the second word of the thread title...

In a similar vein, didn't some septic get flamed by his compatriots for tweeting 'all blacks are destroying USA' when the ABs played the Eagles a few years ago..?

Excuse but what is the point of getting to the top and if you can't do drugs like that. Not All the time but occasionally. It like the whole Aaron Smith thing or when complained about Michael Phelps smoking weed, like if you can do that and still be one of the top players in your sport, fair play to you.

I'm sure that sounded good in your head but he's a former professional athlete.

He’s lived in Europe forever now, does he have any idea how hard it is to get coke in NZ? Believe me, it’s hard.

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they indulged in places where it’s more readily available.

But I’m not sure how seriously we can take all of EFS’ - Mister “Nigel Owens is racist because he penalised Samoa”, “The All Blacks are Nazis”, “the IRB are basically Hitler” - statements

He does good work in Samoa but he can be a bit of an idiot. At the 2011 RWC he likened a 3 day turn around in scheduling of the world cup to slavery, the holocaust and apartheid.

The only reason I would doubt it is because coke was never massively available in NZ - you could get it if you really wanted, but it took a lot of effort (and the more effort it takes to get drugs, the more likely you are going to be exposed by someone). Maybe that has changed (or maybe it's just more readily available in certain circles)?

I have no doubt that if it was as available as it is in Oz or the UK, there would be plenty of NZ super rugby players partaking.

So that's where Hardie got into the habit.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/41700660

Note, never confirmed it was cocaine, and he never failed a drug test, but he was suspended for 3 months for gross misconduct.

From the party central, bright lights of Invercargill to the quaint and innocent hamlet of Trainspotting-town, eh?

It really isn't an easy drug to get in NZ. Hence the fact you get NZ sportsmen getting caught doing stupid shit with energy drinks and prescription pills and not with coke.

Drug testing at the international level must be poor if we are to believe his other comment that players have been under the influence during tests.

When you've got disposable cash I imagine it's as hard to get as in Aus. Also ABs aren't in NZ the whole year.

Wonder if this is the stuff Gatland knew about, I've always questioned AB fitness and how in the last quarter have more in the tank, this sheds some light.
Could be the tip of the iceburg.

Good point. EFS never said where these coke fueled tests took place. Could have been Paris or London. Guess the NZRU won't be suing. :lol:

There's 46 players involved in a test match, most if not all will not be tested then and there.

The Lions dominated the final stages of all three tests.

Uh oh.

It's not hard to get in Aus. At all. It is hard to get in NZ.

They might do it on tour, but that seems even more fraught.

I don't doubt that plenty of them would do it, but it would surprise me if plenty of them DO do it. PEDs on the other hand...

Mike King bought a travel agency and took tour groups overseas to feed his addiction which tells you something about its availability here.

EFS has always been an obnoxious moron on twitter, he'll lie like he did on Campbell live during the 2011 rwc if pressed for evidence.

It's one of those things that (particularly young) kiwis go nuts on overseas, precisely because we don't get it in NZ. I know loads of people who will head to Oz for a bender and have pre-sourced themselves some blow.
