Former New Zealand international Jason Eaton has been accused of assault following a night-club brawl in France that was captured on video, a police source said.

The 35-year-old La Rochelle lock and compatriot Romana Graham, a 31-year-old second row who left the French club at the end of last season, were involved in a late-night fight outside a club in the town last week.

"A video is being studied and will be used to discern the facts from the fiction, because it seems that everyone involved was drunk," said the police source.

Eaton, who won 15 All Blacks caps between 2005 and 2009, is one of La Rochelle's star players. He helped the unfashionable outfit top the regular 2016/17 standings and reach the Top 14 semi-finals last season.
