Bioplus contains a high dose of caffeine and may also contain Guarana, which has a similar stimulant effect to caffeine. Caffeine is a stimulant and although not banned due to its presence in coffee, it will have the effect of giving the rugby players a rather unfair advantage over other teams and may seriously interfere with their sleep on the night before playing a rugby match.
