Featherstone Rovers have released a statement about an ‘incident’ following the club’s 34-12 loss to Toulouse Olympique on Sunday night.
The club’s statement reads:
“Featherstone Rovers have been made aware of an incident that occurred in Toulouse in the early hours of Monday 11th October. The club is working with Toulouse Olympique and the French authorities to assist in any way we can. We will provide further information if and when appropriate to do so.”
Treize Mondial has reported that a 51-year-old man wanted to cross the ring road in an unlit area and lost his life after being hit by a car, with the driver in shock.
An investigation has since been launched, but Treize Mondial has suggested that that the supporter wanted to cut through the ring road to save time.
