Prior to invoking Rule 183 Stewards considered all available evidence including:

• that two Certificates have been issued by approved drug testing laboratories confirming Cobalt has been detected above the threshold;
• the level of the readings relative to the threshold;
• the nature of the prohibited substance; and
• the absolute nature of prohibited substance offences.
