Springboks and Lions winger Aphiwe Dyantyi faces a four-year ban after he tested positive for steroids.

The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) had informed him that a banned substance was detected in a sample collected last month.

Dyantyi has now been formally charged with a doping offence.
