He made his debut for Australia (the Wallabies) in 2003 and won 37 caps, including at the 2003 Rugby World Cup, where Australia lost in the final. In 2006 he failed a drugs test and received a two-year suspension from all forms of rugby. His contract with the ARU was terminated, ending his rugby union career. He returned to rugby league in May 2008 with NRL club the St George Illawarra Dragons after his ban expired, playing for two seasons (the second of which was under his old Brisbane coach, Wayne Bennett), before retiring. Since retiring, Sailor has worked in television presenting and has appeared in reality TV shows. (en)
