Nairobi - An investigation has found steroids in supplements given to players on Kenya's national rugby sevens team.
A report by an anti-doping task force set up by the government says Kenya's sevens head coach Paul Treu of South Africa and five members of his coaching staff should be called to anti-doping disciplinary hearings over the discovery. The report also called for the head coach and assistant coach of the 15-a-side national team to face disciplinary proceedings.

The investigation initially focused on allegations of doping in Kenya's No. 1 sport, athletics, but revealed more worrying findings within Kenya's fast-improving sevens rugby team.
The report, which has been handed over to the Kenyan government, says "there were strong suggestions" that the coaches violated anti-doping regulations after they introduced supplements to the players.
