Tests result in positive spin

SPORTS desks up and down the country will have been temporarily gobsmacked the other day when a media release landed, from the Scottish Rugby Union, headlined: ‘All Scottish Rugby’s drug tests again positive’.

Further reading then made it clear that, far from ending up ‘positive’ for drug misuse, all the hundreds of tests carried out last year proved to be clear – for the ninth successive year.

P.S. The rugby World Cup begins this evening, with Scotland playing their first match on Sunday. Come on, Scotland!
