RugbyL: Australia's NRL to use biological passport tests

Australia's National Rugby League announced Friday it will introduce new "biological passport" drug tests that can spot the signs of doping even after chemicals have left an athlete's body. The Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) programme was developed during last year's London Olympics to detect Human Growth Hormone (hGH) and increases testing for peptides. NRL chief executive Dave Smith said in a statement the ABP tests differ from traditional techniques as they look at the effects of doping, rather than directly detecting the prohibited substances or methods used.
