Willie Rioli tests positive to cannabis, says AFL

The career of West Coast star Willie Rioli has been thrown into further turmoil, with the AFL announcing that a drug test allegedly found cannabis in his system on the night of the elimination final win over Essendon.

Rioli had already been cited for an alleged urine substitution violation on August 20, for which he is serving a provisional suspension.

But on Tuesday, the AFL issued a statement declaring Rioli had been notified of a positive test for "a metabolite of cannabis," which is an in-competition prohibited substance under the AFL's anti-doping code.

"The AFL has confirmed that William Rioli of the West Coast Eagles has been notified of a further adverse analytical finding (AAF) and a potential violation of the Australian Football Anti-Doping Code in respect [to] a test conducted by ASADA on September 5, 2019," the league said in a statement.

"The September 5, 2019 sample has tested positive for a metabolite of cannabis, which is an in-competition prohibited substance under the code."
