Toulouse and south Africa hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle has tested positive for the anabolic steroid drostanolone in a control carried out by the International Rugby Board [IRB], according to French sports daily L’Équipe.

L’Équipe reports that the 27-year-old hooker is now preparing his defence for a hearing on an as-yet-unconfirmed date. The test took place on the 19th of March, after which Ralepelle’s urine sample was shown to contain the banned substance.

The 22-times capped Springbok was recovering from knee surgery at that time, having had his ACL operated on in mid-February.

Ralepelle previously tested positive for a banned substance after South Africa’s clash with Ireland in Dublin in 2010, when his sample was found to contain the performance-enhancing drug methylhexanamine.
