No further details were given, with a Scottish Rugby statement adding only that “we are unable to comment further given the nature of the investigation”.

However, the Sunday TImes have reported today with the headline:

“Hardie suspended by the SRU while cocaine allegations are investigated.”

This comes just weeks after rugby league star Zach Hardaker was left out of England’s World Cup squad after positive test for cocaine
