Rugby-Wallabies prop Slipper banned for positive cocaine tests

SYDNEY, May 24 (Reuters) - Wallabies and Queensland Reds prop James Slipper has been banned for two months after testing positive for cocaine, Rugby Australia said on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Slipper tested positive for the banned drug twice in February and May this year. He was suspended for the minimum of two months and fined A$27,500 ($21,000) after a hearing last week.
