Date published: January 28 2015

Toulon back-row Steffon Armitage and loosehead prop Xavier Chiocci have been arrested to be questioned by police over a fight last month.

Radio station France Bleu Toulon reported that the duo were summoned to the police station on Wednesday after attacking a 30-year-old man during a party that followed a win over the Leicester in the Champions Cup on December 13.

According to France Bleu, both players told investigators they have no memory of what happened. No one at Toulon was immediately available for comment.

Armitage was voted the European Player of the Year for 2014 after playing a starring role in Toulon’s successful defence of their Heineken Cup title.
