Interesting turn of events for the FFR
Police have raided the headquarters of the French Rugby Federation (FFR) amid ongoing investigations into alleged favouritism involving its president Bernard Laporte.

Laporte denies allegations he pressured the FFR appeals committee to reduce a sanction against Montpellier. The Top 14 club is owned by Mohed Altrad, with whom 53-year-old Laporte had a previous business relationship.

Sources cited by Reuters and AFP say Laporte's home has also been searched.
