The All Blacks management have issued a statement denying foreign media reports that an All Blacks player has tested positive for cannabis usage.

An international rugby news website reported on Friday that French newspaper Midi Olympique had claimed an unnamed All Black had tested positive for cannabis following the All Blacks' Test against France in Paris in November last year.

All Blacks Manager Darren Shand said neither the New Zealand Rugby Union nor All Blacks management were aware of any player testing positive for cannabis and would have expected to have been advised if that was the case.
