The French Rugby Federation has cleared former All Blacks Dan Carter of anti-doping breaches after the Top 14 final.

French newspaper L’Equipe reported earlier this month that tests conducted after the showpiece match in June showed he had tested positive for corticosteroids.

Despite playing more than an hour with just 14 men, Carter guided the French giants Racing Metro to a thrilling 29-21 win over rivals Toulon in front of 90,000 fans at the Nou Camp in Barcelona.

Carter’s agent, Simon Porter, said the 34-year-old, as well as his Racing team mate Joe Rokocoko, also named in the allegations, had been granted Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) for the prescribed medication as they recovered from injuries.
