Several players have been left out of the France squad to face Italy in their next Six Nations game after the French Rugby Federation said it had sanctioned those who went on a night out following the defeat by Scotland.

“Jacques Brunel has decided to exclude from that list the players who went out after the defeat in Scotland,” the FFR said. “With this inappropriate behaviour, they failed to respect their duty as international players.”


France rugby players questioned after Edinburgh sexual assault claim.
Alexandre Lapandry, Arthur Iturria, Sekou Macalou, Anthony Belleau, Félix Lambey, Jonathan Danty, Rémi Lamerat, Louis Picamoles and Teddy Thomas, who scored two tries against Scotland, do not feature in the squad for the game on 23 February in Marseille. However, the FFR did not name the players sanctioned.

Be interesting if they had taken that stance against anyone other than Italy.

Something of a fall from grace for Louis. Goes back to France after a positive year here and almost immediately drops out of the French starting 15 and seemingly is not neutrally the first choice at his club.

Now to get reprimanded for a booze night out which involves ladies, I bet his wife will be next in line to give him a rough ride!!

Did we ruin him with the pressure of carrying the team for an entire season or has he declined in form due to the less structured conditioning at French clubs?

We definitely didn't ruin him - he was immense for us & it was his decision to leave. He's still the same player skill-wise so the difference is in the top 2 inches
