Newcastle NRL star Jarrod Mullen will reportedly challenge a four-year ban for allegedly testing positive to drugs.

Mullen was issued with a notice of violation last week for testing positive to Drostanolone, and will attempt to have the ban downgraded, according to News Corp Australia.

"Jarrod had two options -- he could have accepted the four-year ban or taken his case to the tribunal. He has elected to do the latter," a NRL spokesman said.
