Education, Arts, Sport and Culture Minister, Senator David Coltart has ordered the Sport and Recreation Commission (SRC) to launch investigations into allegations of doping within the local sport of rugby after two Young Sables players tested positive to performance enhancing drugs.

The Zimbabwe Under 19 rugby team has been under the spotlight after some players are alleged to have tested positive for banned substances after undergoing random testing at the Junior World Rugby Trophy that was staged by the United States.

Zimbabwe Rugby Union President, John Falkenburg recently admitted that two players had tested positive but it has emerged that as many as 13 players may have tested positive.

The International Rugby Board is believed to be currently investigating the alleged use of banned substances by the Young Sables whose only victory at the Junior World Rugby Trophy came against Russia in a 7th and 8th place play-off.
