2. Matt Stevens – Two years
A colourful character, whose singing ability saw him appear on a celebrity version of X Factor, the Durban-born prop made a great success of his move from South Africa, playing for both England and the Lions. But in February 2009, things came crashing down when he was banned for two years after testing positive for cocaine following Bath’s Heineken Cup match against Glasgow a couple of months earlier. Managed to rebuild his career on his return to the game and went on a second Lions tour in 2013.
