The Bradford Bulls Board have met yesterday and have announced that following his appearance before the Rugby Football League�s Disciplinary Committee and his plea of guilty to providing a urine sample containing a banned substance, namely Stanozolol, the club has terminated the contract of Ryan Hudson with immediate effect.
Hudson joined the Bulls from Castleford Tigers in the close season and has not made an appearance for the club.
Bulls Chairman Chris Caisley said today:
�As everyone in the Rugby League knows we have always taken a rigorous stand on this issue. We have also been involved in many Drugs Awareness campaigns both in the local community and beyond. As a consequence, our approach, which we firmly believe other clubs should also adopt, is one of zero tolerance.
We are saddened for Ryan Hudson and the dreadful impact his action has had on a burgeoning career, but our position on these matters is absolutely definite and he left us with no room for manoeuvre.�
