French rugby chairman Bernard Laporte among five in police custody over corruption claims

Behind a paywall, but you get the gist. Others in custody include Serge Simon and Mohed (sp?) Altrad, owner of Montpellier Herault Rugby. Always thought Laporte was a snake, tho admittedly without hard evidence.

Seems like France take rugby corruption seriously. Pity they couldn't investigate Mr Wray and his cohorts.
