Pau duo Daniel Ramsay and Sipa Taumoepeau were both injured in an assault in the wake of their side's ProD2 defeat to Lyon on Saturday night.
Reports suggest that New Zealander Ramsay and his Australian team-mate Taumoepeau were attacked by as many as 20 men armed with baseball bats outside a Lyon nightclub following an altercation inside the establishment. The Sud Ouest newspaper reports that initial scuffle was triggered by an attempt to steal Ramsay's credit card.
Both were taken to hospital following the incident where Ramsay, a second row with the club, was treated for a broken jaw that will not require surgery while centre Taumoepeau was given stitches in a head wound. Police are reportedly investigating the incident.
