My French isn't that great but I get the gist of it. What did they get up to? It doesn't say. Out on the piss and being nobbers were they?

It's all a bit of a mystery...
First news broke that 6 french players were involved in an apparent sex allegation in a Club in Edin.
Story then ran that they were questioned by police and the plane was delayed.
Then it transpired that 6 were retained in Sco and returned to Fra the next day.
Police have stated that they were questioned as witnesses and no allegations have been made.

Squad announcement due on monday was delayed.

Squad has dropped 5 of the six mentioned players and the new mystery is that Teddy Thomas the french best player and try scorer in both matches has also been dropped from the squad and nobody seems to know why :scratch:

It appears that the 5 dropped have been disciplined for going on the piss after a disappointing defeat that didn't warrant exeuberance and let down the public given their recent unsatisfactory performance.

Dont know why Thomas isn't in the squad. Could just be injured .....

Net result is a further weakened squad and a public and Union that have been embarrassed by this turn of events.

It also relates to new Coach who repleced Noves who was sacked in a questionable process without any compensation that is now going to an Industrial Tribunal.

Remember too, as reported in the french section here, that the FFR Predident is under examination for his dealings with biillionaire Mop owner Altrad over accusations of privileged treatment and Altrad is also the new sponsor of the french jersey ...wouldn't be much competition given the current state of affairs and results? ;)

;)

The investigation continues, ....the Clubs have also banned the eliminated players from playing this weekend. There is general opinion and some disgust and embarrassment that members of a a team that lost and performed poorly could exit afterwards and 'sin' in that manner.

All sorts of stories now circulate and there is a formal review of events and I would expect more sanctions.

The one pleasing aspect is that Clubs and Fed seem united for a change in positive open action.

They'll miss Thomas but currently a further mix ´n match will probably reach the same mediocre result :(

Key injuries apart (other teams are suffering similarly) there is no excuse. Indeed! the size of resource and inabilityt to develop excellent talent is disgraceful.

A very sorry, sad state of affairs

It appears now that some Clubs have reinforced the penalty and players not picked this weekend, others have decided other measures e>.g financial penalty and others seem to have just decided to play the offenders...

Such seems to be the importatance of Top14 points and positioning.

Sad, I think that an united front and a disciplined one was called for! :(

Very strange goings-on, especially regarding Thomas, that's a head-scratcher for sure!! Shame is of course, it's a historic 'first' for the French, playing outside of Paris for the first time ever in the 6N??
