FORMER Munster second-row Gerbrandt Grobler has opened up about his decision to take steroids which resulted in two-year ban from rugby in 2014 whilst playing for Western Province.

Twenty sive-year-old Grobler returns to Thomond Park this weekend as part of the Gloucester squad for their Heineken Champions Cup Pool 2 fixture this Saturday, 1pm.
