QRL dismisses Origin camp drug claims

6:26 pm on 28 July 2009

The Queensland Rugby League has dismissed allegations that some players used home-made party drugs during the camp leading up to the third State of Origin game in Brisbane.

However two players have been reprimanded for being out drinking after curfew early in the team's match preparations.

Queensland coach Mal Meninga and team manager Steve Walters met with managing director Ross Livermore at QRL headquarters in Brisbane this afternoon to review the Origin series.

There had been allegation some players had mixed a prescription sleeping drug with a high-energy drink Red Bull but Livermore says there's no evidence it happened.

He wouldn't name the two curfew breakers or say if they'd jeopardised their State of Origin careers.
