    Yes. I think it was a rugby league player or cyclist, but it was more due to a mix up with the A sample.

    A frustrated Warne, who had figures of 1-113 at his bogy ground, bowled three successive bouncers at the end of his 25th over to ensure Bushrangers skipper Cameron White removed him from the attack immediately.
    I hope he does that in the ashes...

    Not really, but according to article, these tests can be misleading, so it's still too early to call them cheats.

    Insane partnership between Rogers and North! Just awesome.

    The whole innings took less than 5 sessions, giving them every chance to take the win. Couldnt ask for a better start from WA, something theyve failed to do for quite a few seasons.

    Yep, but Warne has served his time now. He used the drug to lose weight not to enhance his performance anyway.

    And Poms, I wouldn't read too much into Warneys figures, he's never done magnificently for Victoria compared to Australia.

    top stuff from Rogers as everyone is saying the bloke is hitting form at the right time & is definately a future test opener. North had faded away a bit hopefully this innings will kick start a good season for him.

    So stupid.

    Without wanting to turn this thread into one about performance enhancing drugs and the Shoiab/Asif situation, Warne took a masking agent. Its not too far fetched to realise that, as he screwed his shoulder before the World Cup, and wanted to make the WC his swansong in ODIs, he may have taken something to return back in time.

    Give me rock solid evidence that Warne used steroids and I'll belive it. No one can seem to. He used Diuretics which CAN be used as a masking agent, with many other effects. It's not to far fetched to realise that, as he was overweight in 2003, and wanted to make the WC his swansong in ODI's, he may have taken something to help him get into better shape.

    Look, we all know Warne has hardly anything upstairs, but really - a diuretic to lose weight? Given that he is a professional sportsman and has many legal avenues at his disposal to lose weight (professional trainers, dieticians, etc) why would he use a diuretic?

    So we are just to assume that it is an amazing coincidence that Warne recovered quickly from that injury and at the same time used a diuretic to get slim quick for a press conference?

    Or judge his prospects on the form of cricket in which he's been successful - one day cricket?

    You're acting like he's useless at the longer form, he's been in a bit of a bad form patch at the moment but he's still averaging nigh on 50 for First-Class cricket.
