EIGHT France players who went out in Edinburgh after the Six Nations loss to Scotland on Sunday have been dropped from the squad to face Italy on February 23.

"Following an initial report of sexual assault in Edinburgh city centre during the early hours of Monday 12th February, police conducted various lines of inquiry, including speaking to a number of potential witnesses", a statement from Police Scotland read.

The French rugby federation confirmed in a brief statement that some players were questioned, but did not elaborate.

The police talked to six players who were potential witnesses - rather than perpetrators - in a possible sexual assault. "By this inappropriate behaviour, they did not respect their status as an global player and the resulting duties".

La FFR confirme que certains joueurs sont entendus par les autorités Écossaises.

The flight, which was due to leave at 11am, eventually took off from Edinburgh Airport at 1pm with all the players believed to be on board.

Having lost 32-26 to Scotland, after a narrow defeat at home by Ireland on the opening weekend, France's management had given the players permission to have a night out.

These inquiries have established no crime has been committed'.

Nightclub boss Innes Bolt said: "The French and Scottish rugby teams were all well behaved on their night out in Tigerlily and Lulu".

A report in Scotland's Herald newspaper said members of the squad were held by police following reports of an incident in an Edinburgh bar.
