Former ASADA boss weighs in on drug culture allegations at West Coast

The former head of ASADA has defended the West Coast Eagles 2006 Grand Final win amid claims it was tarnished by an alleged ‘drug culture’.

Richard Ings was the head of ASADA at the time and told Neil Mitchell no players broke any rules on match day.

His comments come after a leaked report to the Herald Sun.

‘The grand final is the most tested match of the AFL calendar,’ he said.

‘In 2006 there would have been a significant number of tests conducted on both teams after that grand final and there were no players tested who returned positive tests for any banned substance range of illicit drugs.’
