France players questioned by Scottish police in Edinburgh
France has had to delay returning home after their Six Nations match against Scotland.
They’ve been forced to stay in Edinburgh after several of their players were called in for questioning by police following an alleged brawl.
The French website Rugbyrama claims the incident took place in the Tigerlily bar in George Street, just west of the city centre, as part of a night out sanctioned by France coach Jacques Brunel.
The French Rugby Federation tweeted to confirm that players had been spoken to by the Scottish and that they were awaiting more information from the authorities.
La FFR confirme que certains joueurs sont entendus par les autorités Écossaises. Nous sommes en attente de plus d’informations.
