France drop eight players for 'inappropriate behaviour' in Scotland

The report was made to the police following France's Six Nations defeat to Scotland at Murrayfield on Sunday.

A French Rugby Federation statement said: "With their inappropriate behaviour they did not respect their status as worldwide players and the responsibilities that brings".

The plane due to carry the French team home from Edinburgh Airport was grounded on Monday morning as Police Scotland wanted to question a number of players regarding an incident that occurred in the early hours of Monday morning.

"With their inappropriate behaviour they did not respect their status as global players and the responsibilities that brings".

On Monday afternoon, reports broke claiming that members of France's Six Nations squad were involved in some unsavoury scenes during a night out in Edinburgh.

Police Scotland later issued a statement confirming that their enquiries established that no crime had been committed.

Teddy Thomas, Louis Picamoles, Arthur Iturria, Anthony Belleau, Jonathan Danty, Sekou Macalou, Remi Lamerat and Felix Lambey have all been left out.

Events Manager Jo McKinnell confirmed that the French players were in the bar that night but said there were no incidents.

Initial reports in the British and French media suggested there was a brawl at Tigerlily but it is understood police received no such reports involving members of the squad.

Their chartered Jet2 flight was set to leave Edinburgh at 11am for Paris Orly but was delayed two hours.
