Former New Zealand U20 player Glen Robertson is one of four Kiwi players to be suspended for doping offences.

Robertson, Zoe Berry and Rhys Pedersen have been banned from playing rugby for the possession and, in some cases, use or attempted use of Clenbuterol. Ben Qauqau-Dodds has been banned for the possession and use or attempted use of Metandienone.

Clenbuterol and Metandienone are both prohibited substances under the New Zealand Sports anti-doping rules. All athletes pleaded guilty to at least one of the offences alleged.

The New Zealand Rugby judicial committee has ordered the suspension of Berry for four years, Pedersen for 21 months, Robertson for four years, and Qauqau-Dodds for two years.
