    NZ rugby players in France questioned

    Two New Zealanders are among six rugby players in France who've been questioned over rape allegations.


    Two New Zealanders are among six rugby players who've been questioned over rape allegations in France.

    Rory Grice, from the Waikato, and Dylan Hayes, from Marlborough, are being questioned by police following allegations a 21-year-old woman was raped after meeting them in a nightclub on March 11.

    Grenoble teammates Dennis Coulson, Chris Farrel, former Wallaby Peter Kimlin and French hooker Loick Jammes have also been questioned, according to French news website La Dauphine.

    Grice, Coulson and Jammes are still in police custody and are being held overnight (local time).

    Kimlin posted on twitter that he was only helping police with the investigation.

    "I want to clarify that I wasn't arrested. I was purely at the police station to help establish a timeline."

    The club has fired all players involved.

    The woman says she met the players in Bordeaux following their match against Bordeaux-Begles, was drugged at the nightclub and taken back to a hotel.

    While he "respects the presumption of innocence", Grenoble club president Eric Pilaud says there will not be an internal enquiry because he "doesn't think the players want to answer our [the team staff's] questions".
