'Bitter pill to swallow': Banned player sends word of warning to future stars

Namibia's Arthur Bouwer opens up about his ban from rugby due to breaching doping regulations. According to Bouwer, "I met a friend and he showed me a couple of supplements. I asked him if they were banned but he said no. He had been tested and ensured me that everything was safe. I didn't do enough research regarding the supplement. I used the capsules and went to the gym without thinking if they were banned or not.". He was subsequently tested positive at the 2016 World Rugby Nations Cup in Romania.
