The hearing took place at the French national team's training base in Marcoussis on Wednesday after the FFR opened a disciplinary case.

The players did not speak after leaving.

Racing 92 denied that Carter, Rokocoko and Imhoff — a star winger for Argentina — breached anti-doping rules.

The club said Friday that the trio had received treatment days before the June 24 final and in full compliance with national and international anti-doping rules.
