French in­quiry

The New Zealand Herald - - SUPER SPORT -

The French rugby fed­er­a­tion has opened an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that could lead to fur­ther sanc­tions for the na­tional team play­ers who al­legedly went out drink­ing af­ter los­ing to hosts Scot­land in the Six Na­tions com­pe­ti­tion. The fed­er­a­tion said the in­quiry has been or­dered by pres­i­dent Bernard La­porte. France coach Jacques Brunel had al­ready ex­cluded the play­ers from his squad be­cause they “did not re­spect their in­ter­na­tional player sta­tus and the du­ties re­sult­ing from it”. France, on an eight-game win­less streak, take on Italy on Fe­bru­ary 23 in Mar­seille.
