Banned Leigh forward Sam Barlow says he is innocent and is lodging a high court appeal after his long suspension.
Barlow has been suspended from all sport for four years by UKAD today.
The back-rower has posted on social media: “In relation to the news and press coverage this morning I will be making no comment alongside my family so please respect our wishes until the high court appeal has been lodged.
“I remain in the position I am innocent and in no way shape or form have I failed, refused, or evaded a test.
“Please respect our wishes especially the media.
“No further comments will be made until my barrister and lawyer agree the time is right.”
