Teddy Thomas punished again over night out in Edinburgh
Teddy Thomas has been fined by Racing 92 for his “inappropriate behaviour” following France’s loss to Scotland in the Six Nations.
The flying winger scored twice for Les Bleus in the 32-26 defeat at Murrayfield, but was one of several players dropped from France’s squad for the next match with Italy due to their behaviour during a night out in Edinburgh.
Racing have now also decided to punish Thomas.
A statement from the Top 14 side read: “The French Rugby Federation has already sanctioned Teddy Thomas by suspending him from the team that will face Italy.
“Racing 92 has opted for a financial penalty against this player retaining his ethics bonus for the month of February.
“Racing 92 wishes to demonstrate to Teddy Thomas that his unsuitable behaviour after the defeat of the France team against Scotland, Sunday, February 11, is not worthy of the professional he is and therefore cannot be tolerated.”
France have lost their opening two Six Nations matches against Ireland and Scotland, and even a win over Italy is unlikely to put them back into title contention.

There are many things we do in life that are not perfectly safe. As long as people have the information, I don't see what the issue is? Frankly, I always thought the fact that certain sports, rugby, American football, ice hockey carried a degree of danger was pretty obvious. It seems like common sense that hitting your head is unhealthy. For children, put all the safety measures you can think of in the game. Personally, I wouldn't let my son play rugby or American football. He's getting into ice hockey and I'm a bit nervous about that. But for full grown adults, people have to be allowed to take risks. The game will never be totally safe, and maybe that's okay.Go to comments
