The police report was made following the French team's defeat by Scotland in the Six Nations on Sunday.

Although it was initially suggested that the players took part in some form of a brawl and were hauled off their plane as they attempted to return to France, it was later confirmed that the players were simply questioned after a sexual assault claim was reported to the police.

In a statement, the French Rugby Federation (FFR) said the players had been dropped as their behaviour "did not respect their global status and the resulting duties".

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.

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

"With this inappropriate behaviour, they failed to respect their duty as global players".

Of the six players interviewed by police only Yacouba Camara - who started at flanker against Scotland - has kept his place.

Events Manager Jo McKinnell said the French players were in the bar on Sunday evening but that there were no incidents.

France lost their Six Nations clash with Scotland at Murrayfield yesterday. Only Italy are below them in the table, with Conor O'Shea's side pointless after conceding 15 tries across their opening two defeats by England and Ireland.
