Former banned Magpies player Lachlan Keefe has spoken openly about his drug suspension following a positive test for the banned performance enhancing substance clenbuterol.

The Collingwood utility player and teammate Josh Thomas were both sidelined for two years as a result of unknowingly taking the substance. Following the incident the club offered both players a chance this year but Keefe has since been delisted while Thomas was offered a new contract.

I thought I hadn’t done anything wrong, so they’ve got it wrong. Then it was all a bit of a whirlwind.

“Once I sat down with Neil Balme and Gary Pert, it all sort of started coming together and I thought, that might be it. Then it rolled from there and I distanced myself from the club, went with the Players Association and my manager, and the rest is history.”
