“He wants to repay his debt and close this chapter,” – International rugby star handed suspended prison sentence

France prop Mohamed Haouas was convicted on Friday for his role in burglaries worth tens of thousands of euros at tobacco vendors in France in 2014.

The 27-year-old who was left out of Les Bleus’ squad for this Sunday’s Six Nations opening match with Italy because of his trial, was given an 18-month suspended sentence and fined €15,000.

“It’s an exemplary journey for young people, and I realise that,” the prosecutor said.

“He wants to repay his debt and close this chapter,” she added.

“We ate at charity-run restaurants, we lived in hostels, it was a little bit difficult,” he said.

“I struggled in life, I sorted things out, I’m proud of having built a family, a home,” he added.
