Rugby player suspended after testing positive for meth

Aroha Nuku failed a routine drug test last September, after playing for the Cyclones in their Round four match of the Farah Palmer Cup.

The test found traces of methamphetamine and dextroamphetamine.

According to Drug Free Sport NZ, on the night she was tested Ms Nuku declared the use of supplements and hay fever tablets.

However, she later admitted to also taking what she thought was ritalin in powder form during a drive between Palmerston North and Hawera earlier in the week.

Wild Pack production banned

The video was uploaded on social platform Facebook over the festive period, attracting an overwhelming response from the public.

As per the circular, songs or video clips the boy band has featured in or produced must not be aired, commencing immediately.
