Official statement from Rugby Club Toulonnais

Rugby Club Toulonnais have taken good note of the fact that James O’Connor, one of their players, was kept in police custody in Paris over drug charges in the night of February 24th to February 25th. This gives a negative image, far from the values defended and promoted by the club.
Mourad Boudjellal, RCT Chairman, and the club’s board wish to assure the supporters and the partners that they are determined to get right to the bottom of this case.
Mourad Boudjellal is to meet the player before taking any decision. More details shall be given, as soon as the meeting has taken place.
