South Africa wing Aphiwe Dyantyi has tested positive for an unspecified banned substance but denies wrongdoing and has requested his B sample to analysed.

The 2018 World Rugby Breakthrough Player of the Year tested positive during a Springbok training camp last month and said he was determined to clear his name.

"I want to deny ever taking any prohibited substance, intentionally or negligently to enhance my performance on the field. I believe in hard work and fair play," Dyantyi said in a statement on Saturday.

"I have never cheated and never will. The presence of this prohibited substance in my body has come as a massive shock to me and together with my management team and experts appointed by them, we are doing everything we can to get to the source of this and to prove my innocence.

"As a professional sportsman on national and international level, we get tested on a regular basis. I have been tested before and again, since this test.
