This really doesn't look good.

Is this a knee jerk reaction by Grenoble or is there something that hasn't been released yet?

Also, its worth pointing out without making any statement regarding the case itself, its not unusual to take people who are making statements about an incident into custody so those statements can be made under caution, for the benefit of all parties involved

RTE reported that they have been fired but have now edited it to say they were suspended

Yeah, would have thought it was next to impossible to fire someone esp in France without them even being charged first.

As none of the players interviewed are signed to Munster in the 2016/17 season can the above posts be moved to a separate thread.

The actions of those involved have no connection to Munster and it would be wrong to implicate Munster Rugby.

Ah, sure nobodies implicating Munster in anything. Farrel has just agreed to move to Munster so that is why, I suppose, the original poster put it in the Munster thread. Could also have been in the Ulster or ex-Leinster players thread too.

No one has accused Munster or the players of any wrong doing. But it is news concerning Munster, given they've signed Farrell for next season.

My point exactly. Signed for next season. This thread is for this season.

I am not saying it should not be discussed but just not here.

Ah that's a bit fussy now in fairness. Absolutely nobody has even remotely implied that Munster are implicated in this, as that would be utterly ridiculous given the whole affair is outside Irish jurisdiction.
